Social Responsibility

Group Volunteering


Are you looking for a customized team-building experience or a different way to celebrate your birthday? Does your office want to give back to the community in a meaningful way? You’ve come to the right place! We can customize a volunteer opportunity for you to fit your schedule and interests.

With over 35 years of experience in facilitating volunteer experiences in the DC area, the EDCJCC’s Center for Social Responsibility and its staff are uniquely equipped to put together your day of giving back.

We offer customized experiences for:

  • Alternative break programs
  • Teambuilding events
  • Corporate responsibility events
  • School groups
  • Youth groups
  • Birthday celebrations

Groups can be as small as 4-5 people and as large as 150. There is no age limit to volunteer with us. Our programs can be designed to be family-friendly and accessible to individuals of different abilities.


Whether you’re in search of a specific volunteer opportunity or a project targeting your personal or professional interests, we can develop a volunteer experience just for you that fits with your schedule.

Meaningful Service

The work of the Center for Social Responsibility focuses on a variety of issues including housing and homelessness, food insecurity, environmental justice, asylum seeker and refugee justice, and many others. We partner with over 50 social service agencies across DC and all of our volunteer opportunities address needs identified by our partner organizations.
