Volunteers are truly the HEART of Main Street

Every year Main Street Mount Vernon works with committed volunteers in order to revitalize historic Downtown Mount Vernon.

Join a Committee or Board of Directors

Experince Mount Vernon employs a single staff member.  As the Central Business District continues to grow, so do the responsibilities of our organization. While we strive to provide the community with a vibrant and well maintained downtown, the need for local input and feedback coupled with a hands-on approach to problem solving necessitates the requirement for volunteer based committess. Volunteering your time on one of Experience Mount Vernon's committees gives you the unique opportunity to take part in shaping the future of our downtown! To learn more about our committees, CLICK HERE.

Because we are a 501c3 nonprofit organization, we are required to have a Board of Directors/Trustees. Our Board of Directors are all volunteer board members who have a vested interest in the success of our focus area. Learn more about our Board of Directors HERE.
