Join the CCWM Volunteers

It is always a good moment to stand up for what's right. Volunteers are the pillars of the CCWM since they are the ones who make it possible to deploy our programs, services, activities and events. During the years 2021-22, the executive committee wishes to bring the CCWM Volunteering Program (CCCWMVP) to the next level, with virtual teams and online assistance units. You are interested in the journey of volunteering? Just know that the world needs more of your kind, and so does the Congolese Community na Washington. Kids, teens, college graduates, professionals, everyone can be involved in our activities in support to the community.
