Seasons of Service, sponsored and promoted
by the Points of Light & Hands On Network, is a portfolio of
national opportunities for people to volunteer for service
projects and activities throughout the year. More than
20 million people volunteer each year to be part of
the Seasons of Service-a year-round action plan to illustrate
how a single day of service can grow into an ongoing
habit of helping communities.
Each day of service is sponsored by a
national organization and focuses on a theme that targets
a specific group. Building each day of service into
your program calendar can promote volunteerism in your
community and provide opportunities for project-oriented
problem solving, planning, teaching, researching, networking,
and increasing community awareness. In addition, you
can tap into the national media focus generated by the
Foundation. The idea is to turn people on to service
so they will become life-long volunteers.
