Volunteers have been an important part of the operation of the Friendship Heights Village Center ever since it opened in 1986. At times, as many as 100 volunteers have been active in various activities.

While there are not always openings in all areas, some of the ways in which volunteers serve are:

  • Providing hospitality assistance at Center special events
  • Preparing and serving a weekly afternoon tea
  • Helping to staff the front desk
  • Maintaining the Village library
  • Advising the Village Council on community concerns
  • Assisting in the development of Village programs
  • Working with kindergarten students from the local elementary school
  • Helping to chaperone Village trips
  • Photographing Village events
  • New ways yet to be discovered!
