Join the So What Else Volunteer Team!

“Service is the powerful catalyst in the cycle of humanity.”

By volunteering your time with So What Else:

  • You can work with us and other area service organizations on a broad range of community and youth-focused efforts.
  • We can help you plan and implement your community service projects and provide volunteer support.
  • Middle and high school aged students can earn their student service learning hours.

Why volunteer?

The Washington D.C. metropolitan area represents some of the wealthiest cities and counties in this country; however, we must never lose sight of the very real fact that many families in our community are living under impoverished conditions. So What Else focuses its direct services on the under supported and underserved youth in our community, but we also work to create a platform for people to serve through our partnerships and relationships with local and national organizations in the area—a practice that harkens back to our early days when So What Else existed only to connect volunteers to projects.

We ask you to join us in these efforts by donating your time and skills. You will not only help the generation of tomorrow improve their life options and limit the negative impacts of their environment, but you will also find a sense of personal pride and satisfaction after spending an afternoon volunteering your time to one of the +75 deserving projects in which we participate throughout the year.

So What Else is an organization that values diversity as a core component of our organization and we represent a diverse cross-section of interested, interesting, committed volunteers and participants ranging from teenagers to seniors. The volunteer opportunities include working with local organizations at their various events, and of course working directly with the youth we serve.

We welcome (and encourage!) youth groups, faith based groups, corporate groups and families to come out and volunteer at any of our projects listed on our online calendar.
