National Days of Service

Each national 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. The idea is to turn people on to service so they will become lifelong volunteers.

National Service members planning events for National Days of Service should complete this Overview Reporting Form before the event. After the event, National Service members should fill out this Event Recap Form.

National Service Quarterly Calls

National Service members are working to solve some of the challenges facing Idaho. National Service quarterly calls offer national service participants the chance to learn about each other and how national service works to solve community issues. During the quarterly calls, two or three national service participants discuss their projects and why they decided to become a part of national service. The Idaho CNCS Office staff and Serve Idaho staff will focus on a different professional development topic each quarter. All national service members and program directors are welcome to join the call. If you are a national service member, and would like to speak at an upcoming quarterly call or if you have any questions, please contact Kirstin Mann. See the dates, times and information below.
