National Volunteer Week – Together We Can

National Safe Place Network (NSPN) is excited to celebrate National Volunteer Week (April 18-24). As shared by independentsector.org, 63 million volunteers across the nation hold up the foundation of civil society. Volunteers commit time and resources to programs across the country. Whether it is serving as a local Safe Place® volunteer, participating as a mentor, engaging in gathering needed items for homeless youth and families, or any other of a number of activities – those who volunteer make a positive difference every day.

Involving volunteers adds incredible value to youth and family service organizations. Volunteers support your efforts to:

  • Engage a more diverse range of skills, experience, and knowledge.
  • Increase service delivery quality.
  • Increase your reach to those you serve in your community.
  • Raise awareness about your efforts and garner additional support.
  • Build relationships within your community and strengthen your brand and reputation.
  • Inform the development of current and new opportunities including programming, activities, projects by bringing new opinions, ideas, and approaches.
  • Help your organization's efforts remain relevant by aligning services and approaches to community needs.
  • Help improve health and wellbeing for staff and community members.

Whatever your reason is for including volunteers in your organization, thank you for taking the time to recognize their efforts to support your organization's mission.
