Arizona’s only statewide event dedicated to deepening, elevating, and supporting the state’s extensive community of volunteer and service-learning leaders and programs, the Arizona Summit on Volunteerism and Service-Learning allows individuals and groups to further develop and foster their skills to better serve Arizona’s community needs through a collaborative effort.
The Summit consists of two full days of engaging plenary speakers, interactive workshops, and networking opportunities designed to inspire, energize and mobilize volunteer leaders and service-learning practitioners of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.
Led by a dedicated group of volunteer and service-learning leaders who collaborate to organize this annual, statewide event in conjunction with many local and national partners, the Summit provides the opportunities for individuals and groups to further develop and foster their skills to better serve Arizona’s real community needs through collaborative efforts.
Last year, the Summit was attended by over had 630 volunteer and service-learning leaders, representing 53 communities and 253 organizations throughout the state. Summit attendance has grown an average of 40% per year for the last four years!
Since the beginning, the Summit has also awarded over $27,000 in grants to participants over the last four years, allowing attendees the opportunity to put into practice what they’ve learned at the Summit and create volunteer and service-learning projects in their own communities.
