Age Requirements

First Night volunteers MUST be at least 16 years old, and volunteers under 18 years old MUST have parental/guardian permission.


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.

Volunteer Assignments

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 4 p.m. and you will receive your free admission badge, a box lunch, and your apron.
