Together, we are a force that transforms the world

Global Volunteer Month was initially conceived to recognize the thousands of people around the world who serve as points of light in their own communities. In light of COVID-19, the need to recognize, inspire and activate volunteers is greater than ever. Society’s most vulnerable populations need support and will continue to need support in the weeks and months ahead.
