The recently released 2013 Volunteering and Civic Life in America report shows that 2.57 million Illinoisans demonstrated their commitment to improving their communities by volunteering. This ranks Illinois the top volunteering state out of the eight most populated. Volunteerism throughout Illinois will increase during the year by celebrating community service and connecting and strengthening the already extensive network of organizations involved in service.
The year is sponsored by Generations Serving Generations and Robert R. McCormick Foundation, in cooperation with the Serve Illinois Commission, the Illinois Department on Aging, the Corporation for National and Community Service, the Illinois Board of Higher Education, the Illinois State Board of Education, Illinois Community College Board and the Illinois Senate via Senate Resolution 1002.
You can take part in the Year of the Volunteer by helping your local community or faith based organization, emailing us about your organization's volunteers, or tweeting about your volunteers using #ServeIL.
