National Volunteer Week is April 15-21

National Volunteer Week is less than a month away. This is a great opportunity to recognize your department’s operational and non-operational volunteers and show them how much they mean to you and your community.

The Points of Light Institute provides a National Volunteer Week Resource Guide to help you with your recognition activities. There are also several national recognition programs you can nominate your volunteers for, including the President’s Volunteer Service Award, Daily Point of Light Award, and the Extra Mile – Points of Light Volunteer Pathway.
