Description

Please note that this is not a drop-in opportunity. You will need to wait to receive an email from A Wider Circle to arrange a time for orientation. At that time, your registration will be approved.

Recently, A Wider Circle opened its newest location. In the heart of Shaw and steps from the Metro, our new office, located at 1726 7th Street NW, Washington DC, will be a center of community change emphasizing job and life skills (stress reduction, financial literacy) building programs. We are looking for assistance on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9 am to 5 pm.

We have the following roles for volunteers. Please be aware that these volunteer opportunities require a regular or semi-regular commitment. Training will be provided. 

  1. Greeters and front desk intake volunteers - Many clients who come in will have questions about our offerings. We seek volunteers willing to volunteer a minimum of four hours once per week to sit at the front desk, greet clients and ensure a welcoming presence in our space.
  2. One-to-one workforce volunteers - Write or re-write resumes, search for jobs or apply for jobs on-line. Volunteers pick a regular slot during our open days and offer a minimum of three hours per week. Volunteers should also have a minimum of five years' work experience. Internship opportunities available for students.
  3. Outreach and neighborhood supporters - We want to learn more about our neighbors and share information about ourselves and our services. We seek volunteers willing to offer three-hours of time to visit churches, social service organizations and others in the neighborhood dropping off flyers about our services as well as our involvement opportunities.
  4. Data entry volunteers - We will carefully track the types of services provided and information about those we serve. We will have on-line intake tools and a database of clients. We seek volunteers willing to help in three- to four-hour increments entering client data and working in the database, running reports and detailing our support. Familiarity with databases, internet, excel, and Google forms highly preferred.
