Students Learn How They Help Their Community During COVID-19
Volunteer Alexandria is also offering their Breaks with Impact program online every Tuesday and Thursday 2-3 p.m. through April and May for students grade 6 through 12.
This program for young adults focuses on community engagements. Participants learn more about social issues facing Alexandrians and how nonprofits and government agencies address these issues.
Breaks with Impact connects students with leaders within those type of organizations to learn the organizations’ mission and how the students can get involved in their own community through a project.
Completing the webinar, reflection, and project tied to each online session will allow students earn direct service hours and service learning hours.
Here are what some students had to say about the Breaks with Impact program:
“It made me feel really good, like I was helping people… It really opened my eyes about the problems in Alexandria… I am making a difference in my community.”

Returning inside, two separate staircases lead to a fabulous master bedroom & bath with a jacuzzi tub. The unusually large master suite offers double walk-in closets and a morning sitting room where you can enjoy your coffee and online news before stepping out for a breath of fresh air on the private outdoor balcony overlooking the terraced garden.
Exposed brick walls and a unique wood-paneled inset, that fits a king size bed. Two sun-drenched, generously proportioned front bedrooms, one with built-ins, and a full bath complete the second level. An exciting Old Town lifestyle is at your fingertips.
The U.S. Census count is underway, the enormous effort happens once every 10 years to count every person living in the United States regardless of age or immigration status.
The census helps determine how much funding Fairfax County receives from money allocated by the federal government to improve transportation, provide education, healthcare, affordable housing and prepare for emergencies. It also determines how many representatives are sent to Richmond and Washington D.C to advocate for the county.
According to the Community Foundation of Northern Virginia, Fairfax County could lose $12,000 in potential funding over the course of a decade for each person who does not respond to the census.
In March, the U.S. Census Bureau began mailing every household an invitation to complete a simple questionnaire about who lives at their address on April 1. People can respond to the census online, by phone, or by mail.
The census will ask for names, age, sex, race and the relation of everyone living in each household. Federal law keeps those responses safe, secure and confidential.
Everyone should be counted to ensure Fairfax County receives its fair share of federal funds and representation.
