Volunteer Alexandria is looking for volunteers who can help run a Volunteer Reception Center (VRCs), should a disaster or emergency affect the Alexandria community. These VRCs provide a central location where spontaneous, unaffiliated volunteers can go to be placed in volunteer positions to assist with disaster recovery.
VRC Training Opportunties
Volunteer Alexandria conducts a series of Volunteer Reception Center Orientations and Tabletop Exercises for disaster volunteers at Volunteer Alexandria.
A high-level overview presentation consisting of what a VRC is, how it is staffed and operated, and the role it plays under the City of Alexandria's Emergency Management Plan.
