Today, in a video message, President Obama officially announced a new summer service initiative, United We Serve, encouraging Americans to create meaningful change in their communities by engaging in service. The initiative is a partnership between the Corporation for National and Community Service and the White House.
United We Serve will kick off on June 22, 2009 at the National Conference on Volunteering and Service and will run through the new National Day of Service and Remembrance on September 11. All the tools for participating in this initiative can be found on the Corporation's website, Serve.gov. You can also share stories about how your volunteers are making a difference this summer at http://www.serve.gov/share.asp.
