VMF is a volunteer organization – we need and seek volunteers who are committed, compassionate and want to make a difference in the lives of veterans with physical and/or mental health challenges.

Marketing and Communication Content Writers for our Marketing & Communications Team

If you are skilled in writing, editing, and publishing; willing to learn about VMF and how we operate, and write about it, we would welcome your time and talent. Content writers develop content for news releases, VMF’s newsletter, VMF marketing materials, and other public facing media communications.

Event Planners & Coordinators

If you are skilled and experienced in event planning and coordination and have strong interpersonal and communications skills, we would love to welcome you to our volunteer team. Event Planners/Coordinators are responsible for event planning and coordination, communicating and working with event site personnel and staff, coordinating with VMF’s social media POCs, and working with VMF personnel.

Outreach and Fundraising

We are seeking friendly, outgoing and personable volunteers to help with our public outreach events, and experienced fundraisers to help with our fundraising program and initiatives.

Veteran Team Volunteer

If you are a veteran, or have experience working with veterans, and have strong interpersonal and communications skills, we would love to welcome you onto our volunteer team.  Our veteran team volunteers work with VMF’s Veteran Coordinator in reviewing and processing veteran applications for a service dog, communicating with veteran applicants, coordinating veteran applicants’ visits to VMF, and conducting follow-up communications with veterans who have received a VMF service dog.

Canine Team Volunteer

In addition to puppy raiser and puppy sitter volunteers, we need volunteers to assist in canine logistics and training support at VMF’s Training Center in Dulles, Virginia.

Our Canine Therapy Services Program consists of Therapy Dog teams that work alongside professional therapists to provide motivational, educational, recreational and therapeutic benefits to enhance the quality of life for local-area veterans in recovery and rehabilitation, or those who are seriously ill or confined.
