Season of Service

partner - serve - change

A week to Volunteer!

Did you know that this week is National Volunteer Week? Serve Sacramento challenges you to join the thousands of volunteers across the country to serve your community in a tangible way! One way Serve Sacramento mobilizes people to serve is through the resources found on our website.

Our website has three easy ways that can connect you to service:

1. View our online regional calendar for upcoming service opportunities all across the region

2. Volunteer with non-profits that serve in the cause that is of particular interest to you by clicking on the "Your Cause" button on our website's menu bar

3. Find service opportunities in the area you live by clicking on the "Your Area" button on our website's menu bar

It's that simple! Happy serving!
