Calling All Volunteers!

For Immediate Release
February 6, 2019

In observance of National Volunteer Week (April 7 – 13, 2019), the Office of Organizational Health’s (OOH) Volunteer Service Program would like to recognize Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers and Partner Organization staff for supporting organizations in their community through generous acts of volunteerism.

The theme for National Volunteer Week is “Celebrate Service – an opportunity to shine a light on the people and causes that inspire us to serve.”  Volunteerism empowers individuals to find their purpose, to take their passion and turn It into meaningful change.

If you are interested in sharing your testimonial on the topic, “What Inspires You to Serve?”, please contact Carmen Menefee, Work Life Program Coordinator, at Carmen.Menefee@dhs.fletc.gov or (912) 267-2280 by February 28, 2019.

Testimonials will be posted on the OOH SharePoint site, Volunteer Community Service Page beginning April 7, 2019, along with information on activities and volunteer opportunities available in local communities surrounding the Glynco, Charleston, Cheltenham and Artesia training delivery points.

                A volunteer is a person who can see what others cannot see; who can feel what most do not

                feel.  Often, such gifted persons do not think of themselves as volunteers, but as citizens –

citizens in the fullest sense; partners in civilization.
