ACT-IAC: Where government and industry leaders collaborate.

Volunteer Corps

 

If you are looking for a way to give back to the local community, join the ACT-IAC Volunteer Corps. The Volunteer Corps was established as a way to channel the passion and energy of ACT-IAC’s many volunteers into supporting activities that serve a great cause.  Throughout the year the Corps identifies charitable organizations in the Washington, DC region and organizes volunteers to support the organization.  Volunteer Corps members have built homes for Habitat for Humanity, served meals at DC Kitchen, escorted World War II veterans on Honor Flights to DC and much more. For further information and/or involvement on the Volunteer Corps, please contact our Manager, Professional Development, Chelsea Foster at cfoster@actiac.org.

Example of Past Volunteer Corps Events

ACT-IAC Volunteer Corps joins forces with among the 45K other volunteers in Arlington, VA each December for Wreaths Across America-More than 45,000 volunteers turned out each year to carefully lay remembrance wreaths at the Arlington National Cemetery as part of “Wreaths Across America.”  The wreaths  are placed at grave sites nationwide to honor and remember fallen veterans and their service. 

"Lucky Dog Adoption Event"...Every 2-3 weeks, a big transport of dogs rolls up to DC from South Carolina, bringing 50-60 new Lucky Dogs ready to find their forever homes. Wouldn't you love to be part of the welcoming party? 

ACT-IAC Volunteer Corps Supports DCA Honor Flight - At least once each year the ACT-IAC Volunteer Corps serves as airport greeters when Veterans arrive at Ronald Reagan National Airport.  Our mission is to ensure our Nation’s Heroes received the Heroes' Welcome they deserve, and to make their trip to the Nation’s Capital an unforgettable day. 

ACT-IAC Serves at DC Kitchen! – DC Central Kitchen is America’s leader in reducing hunger with recycling food, training unemployed adults for culinary careers, serving healthy meals, and rebuilding urban food systems through social enterprise. ACT-IAC Volunteer Corps will help with food preparations Including chopping, washing, and serving food.

Operation Jump Start - Operation Jump Start is a wonderful event helping the soldiers of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom to transition to civilian careers by collecting donations of quality suits (men and women's), gift cards, and cash donations.  Each year we look for volunteers to assist on-site during the event with donations.
