Volunteer Update - Ramping Up for the Games!
Hey Volunteers! We wanted to give you an update. I know you are all eager to get your assignment, and get going! We have had a little bit of a delay. We have had such an overwhelming showing of volunteer support and we are working to get everyone into the system and assigned to a job. Our fingers are click click clicking away but we fell behind. So here are how things are shaping up moving forward:
Background Checks: Background checks are complete for anyone in the database prior to May 12th. There will be a last round of checks for anyone that registered after that. You will be notified if you do not pass the check. Otherwise you are accepted.
Assignments: You will begin seeing emails inviting you to accept your position and role with the Games. These will be happening over the next week.
Schedules: Our goal is to have Self Scheduling Open next week, approximately June 8th. You will get an email when it is open. The email will give you the instructions you need to select your shifts for the Games.
Orientation: Our volunteer orientation will be completed online. It will be made available the same day as Self Scheduling. In order to access the online training, you will need to create a user name and account for the Fairfax2015 website. This is different from the volunteer database. It may seem confusing now, but we’ll walk you through the steps when it goes live.
Accreditation and Uniform Distribution: Your volunteer credential and uniform will be available at our Volunteer Headquarters beginning Saturday June 20th. Our headquarters will be located at
1800 Cameron Glen Drive Reston VA
Hours of Operation:
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (0900 to 1700)
Thursday, Friday 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM (1600 to 2100)
Saturday, Sunday 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM (1000 to 1800)
The process itself takes less than 10 minutes. But please plan for lines during the evening and weekend times.
Opening Ceremonies: We would love for you to volunteer for Opening Ceremonies! But if you are not volunteering, please grab some tickets and welcome our athletes! Please click here for tickets!
Closing Ceremonies: We will have a limited number of tickets available for Closing Ceremonies. This event is not open to the public but is for our athletes, volunteers, and those that brought the Games to Fairfax. We will get you more information on tickets when available. They will be first come, first serve.Last modified on
