National Volunteer Week Resource Guide
National Volunteer Week is a call to action for Americans to volunteer a week and to inspire by example. Created by executive order of President Richard Nixon in 1974, this week signals a re-commitment to creating a culture of service in America. It is also a week to encourage individuals to get involved in the community by volunteering through Extension programs and a great opportunity to take time to recognize Extension volunteers for their efforts. In the National Volunteer Week Resource Guide, provided by the Points of Light Institute, you will find all of the essential messages and resources to effectively encourage and acknowledge volunteer participation, inspiration and recognition during the week.
