Activating Civic Engagement during National Volunteer Week 2017

National Volunteer Week, brought to you by Points of Light, is an opportunity to recognize and thank volunteers who lend their time, talent, voice and support to causes they care about in their community. Their stories can serve to inspire others to find ways to take action that creates change. Service Unites, the theme for National Volunteer Week captures the power of change makers to come together across divides to build stronger, more vibrant communities through service.

Follow Common Impact throughout the week for impact stories from our nonprofit partners and join our Twitter chat on 4/25 at 12pm EDT on activating civic engagement through skills-based volunteering.
