They may take part in professional training such as resume building, dressing for success, financial planning for the future, disaster preparedness and more.

The more hours you earn, the greater the opportunity to earn prizes.
Volunteers also will have the opportunity to receive:

Orientation will be held June 25 from 9 a.m. to noon at Potomac Place Neighborhood Center, 4998 2nd Corps Blvd.
