National Volunteer Week is April 21-27. The week when nonprofit organizations throughout the U.S. will celebrate and honor their volunteers.
If you are not already volunteering, what a great time to start.
And, if you are a workplace leader who supports a volunteer program at your business, you already know that by encouraging employees to give back to your community you are:
- building teamwork
- motivating employees
- attracting new hires
Fortunately, throughout the U.S. there are hundreds of volunteer opportunities where employees can contribute individually, or where leaders can organize teams of employees to volunteer together on a routine and scheduled basis.
To find organizations in need of volunteers, go to Volunteer Match and type in your zip code. You'll be presented a list of nearby volunteer opportunities. Also, you can find opportunities on iParticipate.
