Date: April 12-18,
Established in 1974, National Volunteer Week has grown exponentially in
scope each year since, drawing the support and endorsement of all subsequent
U.S. presidents, governors, mayors and other respected elected officials.
National Volunteer Week is about inspiring, recognizing and encouraging
people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities. It is
about taking action and encouraging individuals and their respective
communities to be at the center of social change — discovering and actively
demonstrating their collective power to foster positive transformation.
National Volunteer Week is a time not only to celebrate our volunteers but
also to enable a nation to share ideas, practices and stories, wherever they
happen. This week shapes a movement to re-imagine the notion of citizenship
for the 21st century.
A detailed schedule of events will be posted in Spring
