2011 National Conference on Volunteering and Service
Every year we co-convene the National Conference on Volunteering and Service with the Corporation for National and Community Service. This year is as important as ever to mobilize and equip volunteers to make change in the word. Volunteerism is especially critical at this time to help our neighbors in need who are affected by the disasters across the U.S. Thus it is very fitting to have the Conference in New Orleans on June 6-8, where there is still rebuilding happening after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005.
This year the National Conference on Volunteering and Service offers service projects where you can help revitalize New Orleans parks and playgrounds; it also offers numerous workshops, forums, and immersion learning sessions, where leaders can come together to share innovative ideas to spark change. The Conference is all about bringing citizens together to help discuss, listen, and learn ways in which we can improve the world. Conference is a place to learn new ways to create, and mobilize volunteer projects that have real impact on the root of problems. Conference creates a place where people from all over can gather to harness their power to make a difference. It is through people that real change is driven. Volunteerism is a valuable and important resource.
