The Call for Presenters for the 2017 Massachusetts Conference on Service and Volunteering is now OPEN!


Every day throughout Massachusetts there are residents facing significant challenges with issues like opioid use, unemployment, homelessness, food insecurity, limited access to higher education and the achievement gap. There are many community-based organizations and public agencies in the state that are working hard to address these issues by strategically utilizing service and resourcefully managing volunteers. We invite you to share your expertise as we explore innovative ways to harness the power of service and volunteerism and turn the energy of volunteers and Corps members into efforts that directly impact our most pressing community needs. 


Presenters will play a key role in ensuring that the over 400 attendees leave the conference with new skills, insights into best practices, understanding trends, connections to potential partners, and increased enthusiasm for tackling the big issues that concern us in the Commonwealth through engaging volunteers and Corps members.
