Volunteering: The Heart of America

Did you know that more than 64 million Americans volunteer each year? In fact, collectively we give back an average of more than 3.2 billion hours year – providing agencies and organizations with around $23.2 billion annually in social value.

If volunteering for a cause interests you, social work may be your calling. Social workers influence federal law and help communities and families in need. In addition, a career in social work can open the door to job opportunities in a variety of areas, ranging from education to government positions.
