Introduction – Virginia Service Commission (VSC)

The Virginia Service Commission (VSC) is part of the Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) – Office on Volunteerism and Community Services (OVCS). VSC is operated by Commonwealth of Virginia staff and manages the implementation of AmeriCorps State programming, supports the Governor’s Advisory Board on Service and Volunteerism, and collaborates with other national service programs operating in Virginia.

The mission of VSC is to maximize and strengthen national service programming in Virginia through training, engagement of local and state leadership, promotion of service and volunteerism within the state, and documentation of service impact across the Commonwealth.

We will use the acronym VSC to refer to our agency throughout this portal.
