2014 Roll of Honor
Here's your opportunity to publicly thank those volunteers who spent 500+ hours ensuring your services were available to the community. Everyone of them can be added to the Roll of Honor providing you can document their time during 2013. As recognition, their name is published in the news so neighbors can join in saying "Thanks," each one gets a certificate, and they are recognized in a listing on VolunteerMaine.org.
The Maine Commission for Community Service, in partnership with Youth Service America, is offering materials, training and small grants to support the engagement of Maine Youth in GYSD service activities. Grants are for up to $300.
Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) celebrates and mobilizes the millions of young people who improve their communities each year through service. It is the largest service event in the world and the only day of service dedicated to service by children and youth!
