Add Your Thoughts to Our Volunteer Word Cloud

Volunteers = LoveIt’s finally here and we’re so excited!

We’re talking about National Volunteer Week — a week-long celebration of the good people and good causes, like yourself, that inspire and support our communities. Skills, energy, care, and passion: these are some of the values that embody volunteers.

That’s why this National Volunteer Week, we’re handing the microphone to you. In one word, we want to know: What comes to mind when you think of volunteers? By the end of the week, we’ll compile the results and share in one, all-encompassing word cloud that shows our various experiences and shares what we know all along: volunteers are beautiful people. Share your response in the comment section below!

Throughout the week, we’ll also be spotlighting nonprofit and volunteer stories on our blog, through Facebook, and on Instagram, so check back daily for your dose of National Volunteer Week inspiration! You can also join in the conversation on social media using the hashtags “#ivolunteer”, “#NVW”, and #NVW2017.

And if you’re a volunteer leader, take note of the wealth of volunteer recognition resources on Engaging Volunteers to help you make the most of celebrating volunteers throughout the week. Inspire your volunteers — and even, yourself! — with these 18 famous quotes, register for a free webinar to expand your volunteer management knowledge, and volunteer yourself by finding an opportunity to give back to your community.
