Service and Volunteerism
|Governor’s Office on Service and Volunteerism
The Governor’s Office on Service and Volunteerism is a unit of the Governor’s Office of Community Initiatives. Through the use of federal dollars, the office funds AmeriCorps State programs to support community service efforts in Maryland. Each year, the office recognizes thousands of Maryland volunteers on behalf of the governor.
Volunteer Maryland builds stronger, healthier communities by developing volunteer programs with nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and schools. Its vision is that all Marylanders will participate in and value service as a way of life to enrich and empower community, society, and self.
|Day to Serve
Day to Serve is an annual, month-long community service initiative, from September 11 to October 11, in which Maryland joins Washington, D.C., Virginia, and West Virginia in encouraging its residents to get out and volunteer.
