Request Volunteers

Short-Term Volunteers

The Junior League of Washington proudly provides trained volunteers for short-term service in response to requests from community organizations, supporting the League’s commitment to improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. To request volunteer support for your short-term project, event, or organization, please fill out the form below. Requests must be received one month in advance to allow us adequate time to secure volunteer resources. Preference will be given to volunteer opportunities that have a direct impact on the Washington, DC, community and/or that support JLW’s focus on promoting literacy. Last year, the League partnered with and supported more than 20 community organizations with volunteer service.

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.
