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:

October 18, 2019: Richmond Prejudice Awareness Summit (at Virginia Commonwealth University)

Groups of 12-15 middle school students experience workshops facilitated by co-facilitator teams made up of an adult community facilitator and a high school student 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.
