VOAOR has so many great opportunities to discover or recommit to volunteering and reflect on the impact of service on our community. 900 volunteers serve VOAOR in one-time and recurring positions each year; more than 64 million people volunteer nationally – donating time and expertise valued at $173 billion. View our Volunteer Spotlights to learn about the impact of volunteering on our programs and the lives of the volunteers, and our Group Projects for more on the contribution of VOAOR’s key corporate volunteer partners.
VOA will be hosting recognition activities for volunteers throughout the month to complement our year-long volunteer training initiative, and welcoming new volunteers to join our work through one-time service projects on April 16th and 25th. Orientation sessions for long-term volunteers are on April 9th and 25th.
