Mission Statement

Helping those in need in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area through one-year volunteer service placements with stipend. Supporting volunteers in their living and growing in an intentional community.

Description

The Westmoreland Volunteer Corps (WVC) is a one-year domestic paid volunteer service program that annually places five young adults, typically recent college graduates, or others with related work experience, in responsible internship positions in Washington, DC, area social service agencies. WVC looks for those who have a commitment to social justice and an interest in helping others. Individual spiritual growth is encouraged as volunteers share a simple lifestyle in an intentional community. WVC was founded in Bethesda, MD, by Westmoreland Congregational United Church of Christ in 1985. Service placements are located in the greater Washington, DC, area. Depending on the agency and position in which the Volunteer is placed, work may center on children, the homeless, the elderly, refugees, HIV-AIDS, health services, etc. Volunteers live in a former parsonage in Bethesda, MD, with easy access to public transportation. Volunteers receive health insurance, allowances for food, transportation and small personal expense stipend.
