Creating a Bright Future for Our Kids Forum (SID 4949)
Sponsored by Target
Every kid deserves a bright future and should have the opportunity to reach his or her potential. Join Target to focus on how to engage caring adults through volunteerism to support teachers – the most valuable classroom resources. Learn more about Target’s partnership with Major League Baseball and People magazine to recognize “All-Star Teachers.” Hear from those on the front lines and get inspired with some special guests.
Prepared Is Protected: Global Forum on Disaster Preparedness and Recovery (SID 4951)
Sponsored by UPS
From hurricanes to wildfires, from New York City to the Philippines – disasters can strike anywhere, anytime. Cities have historically called on citizen volunteers to respond in emergencies. In this panel discussion, mayors from across the United States will share how their cities are leveraging the power of volunteers to better prepare for disasters.
A HandsOn Network Innovation and Social Impact Forum (SID 4950)
Sponsored by JPMorgan Chase & Co.
This interactive forum is a celebration of the One America campaign and the new, innovative program models that HandsOn Network affiliates and their nonprofit partners are adopting to address critical community needs. We’ll focus on sharing replicable, sustainable examples, as the sector seeks to understand what’s next in 21st Century volunteering and how to align impact with sustainability. Attendees will observe media, subject matter experts and other notable judges evaluate “pitches” and award grants which will be provided by Points of Light with funding made possible by JPMorgan Chase & Co. HandsOn Network affiliates whose efforts sustain or enhance local economic vitality are eligible to win the grants.

National service continues to gain momentum because leaders from all levels of government and the private sector increasingly see it as a means to achieve results. This session will shine a spotlight on some of the most innovative ways national service programs are strengthening communities and improving lives.
