National Volunteer Week is coming up on April 21-27, 2013! Since its inception in 1974, National Volunteer Week is a period to celebrate the power and impact of service. National Volunteer Week is bolstered by the support of President Obama, Congress, governors and mayors. Indeed, as Obama stated in 2012:
“As we continue to pursue progress, service and social innovation will play an essential role in achieving our highest ambitions — from a world-class education for every child to an economy built to last. During National Volunteer Week, we pay tribute to all who give of themselves to keep America strong, and we renew the spirit of service that has enriched our country for generations.”
