Be a Project Volunteer

Project volunteers are the key to our pro bono work with local communities. Coming from design and related professions, project volunteers are matched with community-initiated projects to provide high quality conceptual design assistance. The commitment required varies by project, but typically ranges from 4-6 months. Check out our volunteer opportunities here.

Be a Volunteer Internal Design Reviewer

Internal Design Reviewers are principal and sometimes associate level professionals in design disciplines who provide friendly and constructive critique of project teams’ work at NDC review sessions occurring prior to the first design review with the project stakeholders. Being an Internal Design Reviewer is a great way to contribute to NDC with a limited time commitment. Reviews are held monthly as needed on a weeknight for 1-2 hours, and our pool of reviewers is contacted 7-10 days prior to the scheduled review with the opportunity to volunteer.

To join our pool of reviewers in Baltimore, email Laura Wheaton at lwheaton@ndc-md.org. For Prince George’s County Internal Design Reviewer opportunities, email Allie O’Neill, aoneill@ndc-md.org.

Be an Office Volunteer

NDC occasionally needs additional help in the administration of our programs and projects that we offer as a volunteer opportunity. This may include development support and/or record keeping for our 2000+ past projects. Office Volunteer opportunities are listed by office under Volunteer Opportunities.
