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:

- We can help you plan and implement your community service projects.

- You can work with us on a broad range of community and youth-focused efforts.

- Montgomery County students can earn their student service learning hours.

Why volunteer?

The Washington D.C. metropolitan area is one that represents some of the wealthiest cities and counties in this country. However, we should never lose sight of the very real fact that there are many in our community who are living under impoverished conditions. So What Else focuses on the under supported and underserved youth in our community. We are working to provide them with islands of peace, safety, knowledge and experiences that will position them to improve the quality of their lives now and into adulthood.

We ask you to join with us in these efforts by giving of 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 considerable sense of personal pride and satisfaction.

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 people ranging from teenagers to seniors. The volunteer opportunities include working directly with the youth, providing SWE with administrative support, and hands on work aiding our community.

You can tell us what you are interested in doing, when and where and we will work with you to find a set of experiences in line with your preferences.
