Hi - I'm 22 and work full-time at a defense company. I'm going to be moving to the Arlington area and wanted to get involved with some non-profit/volunteering (non-political) type work.

Do you have any suggestions of which non-profit organizations actively seek/accept young professionals, like myself, to volunteer and work on various initiatives?

What are you interested in? There are gazillions of volunteer groups out there. I volunteer with a dog rescue group doing home visits, fostering dogs, and volunteering at events. I also volunteer with a pet therapy group that goes to nursing homes in the area to visit residents. Finally, I've done tutoring work for high school students in the area.

It really depends what you want to do--you'll be able to find a group for it.

Any of them will need volunteers. The county is cutting funding to almost every non-profit group they support. They will all need help!
