Join us in sunny Atlanta June 16 – 18 for a gathering of 5,000 people on a single mission – to strengthen communities and change lives through volunteer service. The 2014 Conference on Volunteering and Service will showcase those who have new ideas and proven solutions to tough community problems.
Come learn, share and have fun. (See what participants have enjoyed at past conferences here!)
