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.
