National Volunteer Week is here and it’s time to celebrate the incredible impact corporate volunteers make all year long.  National Volunteer Week is sponsored by Points of Light Institute & Hands On Network and is about “inspiring, recognizing and encouraging people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities”.  Corporate volunteer programs provide a rich opportunity to help employees connect to the causes they care about and put your company’s CSR brand into practice.



Read the National Volunteer Week Resource Guide from Hands On Network for more information.


USA TODAY provides a rundown of resources, national programs and local events taking place this week and month.

Highlights include:

  • Starbucksis hosting service activities across the country in April as part of its Global Month of Service dedicated to engaging its employees and customers in meaningful service opportunities.
  • Microsoft US Partners in Learning is teaming up with Youth Service America and the Corporation for National & Community Service, to announce the Global Youth Service Day InterroBang missions.
  • Operation Gratitude is teaming up with McKesson during National Volunteer Week to show their support for the Armed Forces.
  • L'Oreal Paris, in partnership with Points of Light Institute, will kick off the sixth annual call for nominations for Women of Worth on April 11.


Do you have an innovative approach to corporate volunteerism?  We’d love to see shared stories about what works, what doesn’t work and how your companies are forging meaningful relationships with nonprofit partners that drive tangible impact in the communities in which you work and live.
