Looking for Volunteers?

Short-Term Volunteers

The Junior League of Washington's Done-in-a-Day Committee provides trained volunteers in response to requests from community organizations for short-term volunteer service for special events. The Done-in-a-Day (DIAD) Committee's primary focus is to support the League's commitment to literacy by volunteering at events and programs related to literacy or advancing the cause of literacy. Last year, the committee partnered with and supported more than 20 varied community organizations with volunteer service. To request volunteer support from our Done-in-a-Day Committee, please fill out this form.

Regular Ongoing Volunteers

The Junior League of Washington also provides trained volunteers on a regular basis to a number of nonprofit organizations in the greater Washington metropolitan area.

If you represent a nonprofit in the Washington area that might benefit from JLW volunteers – and/or a JLW monetary grant – please consider submitting a Trained Volunteers and/or Targeted Grants application. Applications run on an annual submission cycle -- online applications are typically available by early September and have a deadline submission date, for applications and appendices, of late October. All applications must be submitted electronically to grantsandvolunteers@jlw.org. Click to download our current/latest application for Targeted Grants and Trained Volunteers.
