MCC Youth Ambassador Program

The Mclean Community Center Youth Ambassador Program: Apply by Friday, Dec. 9


MCC is looking for a few good area teens to act as ambassadors to the governing board. 

Position Description:

To assist in fulfilling its mission to provide programs of interest to area teens, the McLean Community Center (MCC) is launching a new initiative, MCC Youth Ambassadors. The purpose of the new initiative is to empower teens to collect and share their classmates’ ideas and feedback with the MCC Governing Board. McLean and Langley high school students enrolled in 9th-12th grades who reside in Dranesville Small District 1A are eligible to apply for the volunteer positions. The deadline to apply is Friday, Dec. 9. MCC is located at 1234 Ingleside Ave. 

Youth Ambassadors will serve as liaisons between community youth and the two youth members of the MCC Governing Board, Sarah Tran (McLean High School boundary area) and Charlotte Loving (Langley High School boundary area). The ambassadors will promote MCC activities via their social media platforms and through resources at their respective schools. They will also assist in planning events and activities targeted to the youth of McLean in support of acquiring their  growing participation in MCC programs. Ambassadors will meet monthly at MCC or the Old Firehouse Center to discuss public feedback and plan future activities.



MCC Youth Ambassador Applications are posted on the MCC website, www.mcleancenter.org. Completed applications should be emailed to MCC General Programs Director Michael Fisher at michael.fisher@fairfaxcounty.gov no later than Friday, Dec. 9.



Questions?  Contact MCC Governing Board member Sarah Tran (McLean High School Boundary Area) at sarah.tran2@fairfaxcounty.gov or Charlotte Loving (Langley High School Boundary Area) at charlotte.loving@fairfaxcounty.gov

McLean Fire Station: Toys for Tots

The National Capital Region Fire and EMS Departments’ 2022 Toys for Tots Campaign is on. Fairfax County fire stations — including McLean — will accept donations from now through Sunday, Dec. 11. Collection boxes will be placed outside the front door of each station every morning, and residents will be able to drop off toys until 8 p.m. daily.

Thanks to the generosity of those who live and work in Fairfax County, the department last year provided the U.S. Marine Corps with about 25,000 toys.

Children who are served by this campaign include toddlers and youths through age 17. The campaign only accepts new, unwrapped toys. Toys used as weapons or considered to be weapons (such as toy guns or knives of any kind) will not be accepted. Checks or money orders for donations must be made payable to “Toys for Tots.”

Be a Volunteer Driver: Shepherd’s Center

The Shepherd’s Center of McLean-Arlington-Falls Church is seeking additional volunteers to support its mission of providing free transportation to seniors for medical and dental appointments or running errands to grocery stores and pharmacies.

Group leaders expect the total number of rides provided in 2022 to exceed 2,500, but in order to respond fully to recent increases in the number of requests, the organization needs more volunteers to join the current team of 60 volunteer drivers.

“Of the rides provided, roughly 75 percent are medically related, 25 percent grocery and 1 percent for handy-helper needs,” said board chairman Tom Callanen.

There is no minimum commitment for volunteers and they are free to choose how often and when they drive. The all-volunteer, non-profit organization has been operating since 2006.

For detailed information or to apply, visit scmafc.org/volunteer or call (703) 506-2199 and leave a message.

New interim Park/Ballfield at Tysons Capital One

On November 1 Fairfax County supervisors unanimously approved a proposal by Capital One subsidiary 1820 Dolley Madison LLC to build an interim park and baseball field on the eastern edge of the bank’s Tysons campus.

The 6.9-acre site, located at Dolley Madison Boulevard (Route 123) and Scotts Crossing Road, is part of the Scotts Run North rezoning, which supervisors approved in June 2015. The property, now home to surface parking for Metro and some vegetated open space, is slated for a six-building mixed-use development with office, residential and retail.

Before that development’s eventual build-out, Capital One East Park and a baseball field will fill the site. The park will include a water feature, landscaping, a play area, fitness zone, plaza area with tables and chairs, restrooms and parking areas for food trucks. The athletic field will have sunken dugouts, synthetic turf and a 90-foot baseball diamond with 390-foot-deep center field. The field will have about 1,000 square feet of gross floor area, including a press box and restrooms.

The ball field’s hours will be from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., but games will be allowed to continue until midnight if necessary. Part of the existing surface-parking lot will remain to serve both the park and baseball field. The applicant will provide a total of 188 parking spaces.

The field will serve both travel and summer baseball leagues in the area, said Supervisor Dalia Palchik (D-Providence). The athletic facility also will “add to what we see as a growing part of Tysons, bringing both the local and outside community for arts and entertainment,” she said.

Capital One previously has permitted construction of interim athletic fields on its Tysons campus and this baseball facility will be a “welcome addition to the inventory of ball fields in the county,” Palchik said.
