Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
FLY is a DC nonprofit organization supporting youth East of the Anacostia River in achieving their educational goals, developing their talents, and expanding their leadership roles. These goals are met through long-term relationships with young people and the community .
The Barry Farms Community Garden is an organic garden located in a park two blocks from the Anacostia metro stop, near Birney Elementary School and the Barry Farms Recreation Center. The garden links youth with the community' s roots and provides them a way to experience results from their own leadership (Barry Farm was given to freedmen who earned a living by farming the land). Over 150 volunteers of all ages have participated in the garden. The garden is youth run, with 5-12 year olds from the FLY tutoring program making a majority of the design and implementation decisions with the help of the Garden Coordinator. Youth come to the garden to be in a nurturing environment where they can learn and work on something constructive. But, most importantly it's fun and allows the youth to build leadership skills and self-confidence.
