Year-round, WGL employees dedicate thousands of volunteer hours through company-sponsored projects that focus on health, education and the environment. From inspiring and preparing students in Maryland to succeed in the global economy through Junior Achievement’s Finance Park, to cleaning the river at Four Mile Run in Virginia, to the much-needed weatherization of homes in the D.C. metro area, we are dedicated to strengthening our community.
Below is a list of winter community service events.
Maryland High School Science Bowl
More than 40 teams from Maryland high schools compete in an academic competition to verbally answer quiz-style questions related to various topics in math and science. The winning team will represent Maryland in the U.S. Department of Energy National Science Bowl Competition. Volunteers serve as competition judges or moderators, timekeepers and scorekeepers. Although some volunteer positions require a math and science background, all are welcome to participate.
Junior Achievement (JA) in a Day
JA in a Day provides volunteers with an opportunity to equip students with the tools required to succeed in the workplace and the financial literacy necessary to succeed in life. Learn more about this initiative.
This fundraising event aims to garner financial support for Junior Achievement’s programs in financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship. Such programs have proven to be invaluable resources to thousands of students each year.
