VOLUNTEER

WITH VCIC

The Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities could not reach schools, businesses, and communities across Virginia without the dedicated support of volunteers.  At VCIC, volunteers help deliver youth and adult programs, convene special events and raise funds, and provide administrative support in our office.

Current Volunteer Opportunities:

March 11, 2019: Tidewater Diversity Dialogue Day (at Old Dominion University)
This one-day youth leadership forum takes participants through a process of awareness to action. Groups of 25-35 high school students experience workshops facilitated by co-facilitator teams. We aim to have each facilitator team consist of one experienced facilitator and one newer facilitator. Facilitators come from a variety of backgrounds and professions, all with a shared interest in working with young people to promote inclusion and respect.

Diversity Dialogue Day is generously sponsored by Dominion Energy.

2019 Harold M. Marsh, Sr. Connections Institute
The Harold M. Marsh, Sr. Connections Institute (formerly Metrotown) is the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities’ signature Emerging Leaders Institute program. Since 1993, this peer leadership experience has prepared student delegates to make decisions based on an appreciation of the vast diversity within Virginia.  Connections is a yearlong process of challenge, growth, and impact for high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors. The experience begins with a five-day residential program during the summer that allows student delegates to break barriers, deal with biased behavior, and develop an action plan to reduce prejudice in their schools.

The 2019 Connections Institute will take place from Monday, August 5 – Friday, August 9 at the W. E. Skelton 4-H Educational Conference Center, located in Wirtz, Virginia.
In order to best support the program and delegates, volunteer staff members must attend a mandatory training beginning on Sunday, August 4.
