April 15-21 | National Volunteer Week

Next week is National Volunteer Week, a time when we pay tribute to the millions of Americans that give back to their communities through acts of service and volunteerism.  We also take this time to celebrate and renew the spirit of service that has enriched our country for generations.

Generations United supports intergenerational service and volunteerism by promoting policies that expand the number and diversity of volunteers in quality intergenerational programs.  A wide range of policies provide opportunities for intergenerational service, including the Serve America Act and the Older Americans Act.

By engaging all generations in volunteer service, communities offer individuals opportunities to help make their cities and towns better places to live, work and thrive.  Not only does it feel good to give back, research shows there are health benefits to it too!

People of all ages can volunteer and make a difference.  Numerous tools are available online to help connect people of all ages to local service opportunities.  To find local volunteer opportunities near you, visit United We Serve

Everyone can be great because anyone can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't even have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve... You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love...

Everyone can be a volunteer but not everyone loves volunteerism. With the hardships and difficulties they encounter during their service we should give them a time foe celebrations and thanking them with unending love,support and services they offered to other people.
