Making a True Difference

At EDG, we believe the concept of volunteerism is about serving a cause greater than you. It is about making a positive difference in other people’s lives.

And we could not come close to achieving our organization’s mission without our supporters and volunteers.

EDG volunteers are crucial to our success, and they serve as brilliant “ambassadors” to the many communities we serve in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. They help us with client and donor outreach, and they contribute to our goal of helping refugees, immigrants and low-income individuals achieve America’s promise of opportunity.

Our volunteers come from all walks of life. Some are current or former clients who have reached success and wanted to give back; some are civic leaders. And many are simply committed to helping others.

What Do Our Volunteers Have In Common?

They help make our local communities better.

EDG needs – and relies on – dedicated and energetic community members who are eager to support community and economic development and take pride in strengthening small businesses.

We are always in search of new resources, new contacts and new mentors for our clients. Your knowledge could help a small business owner in our community succeed!

We realize your time is valuable. So we promise that if you decide to volunteer with us that the experience will be rewarding. Become a volunteer today by filling out our contact form!
