About Us

Are you looking for a one-year meaningful, paid service experience?
Then Westmoreland Volunteer Corps may be the program for you. This domestic volunteer service program provides opportunities for those interested in social service and social justice to work in Washington, D.C., area agencies helping underserved populations.
Sponsored by the Westmoreland Congregational United Church of Christ, a few steps from Washington, D.C. in Bethesda, Maryland, the program provides a group house for volunteers whose interests, training and career goals are matched with the needs of agencies doing work in social service, health care, housing, education, and more.  The volunteers receive a stipend from the agencies at which they work and are charged minimal rent to live in a shared home in an intentional community. A community counselor also works with the group of volunteers.
All persons, regardless of faith, are welcome to apply. The Volunteer Corps was founded in 1985 and has a history of changing the lives of those who are accepted as well as those who benefit from their involvement.

  • A college degree or related work experience.
  • Willingness to live simply on a limited income, cooperatively in community with other adults.
