Many Thanks to Our Volunteer Sponsors!
First Night Alexandria needs YOU to volunteer and help us throw the best family friendly New Year's Eve party in the Washington, DC area! Come with a friend, or volunteer by yourself - either way this is a great way to enjoy one of the best New Year's Eve parties in the region!
First Night volunteers MUST be at least 16 years old, and volunteers under 18 years old MUST have parental/guardian permission.
People who would like to volunteer together should identify their requested partner(s) on the form. All efforts will be made to honor your request, but placement cannot be guaranteed.
A free admission badge (volunteers usually serve only half of the evening, so there is plenty of time to enjoy First Night Alexandria), a box dinner, and a special First Night Alexandria Apron that is worn during each shift and then kept as a souvenir by the volunteer.
Requests are filled on a first come first served basis. Priority is given to previous volunteers and those that attend our orientation in December.
For all locations on New Years Eve, volunteers will be asked to "sign in" at least one hour before their shift begins at our volunteer headquarters at Durant Recreation Center (1605 Cameron Street, Alexandria 22314). You may do this as early as 3 p.m. and you will receive your free admission badge, a box lunch, and your apron.
Previous Criminal Record
A conviction record does not automatically disqualify you from volunteering. The nature of the offense(s), date(s) of conviction, and any pattern offenses will be carefully considered in an attempt to protect First Night Alexandria, its volunteers, and patrons.
A 90-minute opportunity to meet your fellow volunteers, focus on how our operation works and what you are responsible for will be held on Saturday, December 28 2013 at 10:00 a.m. at the George Washington Masonic Memorial, 101 Callahan Drive, Alexandria 22301. (We will meet in the conference room on the lower level...use the North Entrance near the parking lot, not the main entrance at the top of the huge set of stairs.) There is ample free parking. Although it is not required to volunteer, we strongly encourage attendance so you will be up-to-date on First Night 2013.
