White House Answers Your Questions On NonProfits and Volunteering

by Samantha Jo Warfield

Volunteers create a wall mural in the library of West Education Campus, a K - 8 public school in Washington, DC. The volunteers were at the school as part of a September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance event organized by HandsOn Greater DC Cares and U.S. Vets -- United States Veterans Initiative. The event was attended by over 200 White House and Corporation for National and Community Staff and their families. (Corporation photo by Sam Kittner, 2011)

Ever wanted to learn more about AmeriCorps, volunteering, and national service? Here's your chance!

We'll be joining Jon Carson, Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement; Brandon Routh, actor and service advocate; and the team from the Young Non Profit Professionals Network of DC for a Twitter Q&A, November 16th at 1:00 PM EST.

At a time of social need, as Americans are looking for ways to give back, national service programs and nonprofit organizations are critical elements of our social safety net that meet pressing community needs and support our most vulnerable citizens.

The Q&A is an excellent opportunity for nonprofit leaders and national service programs and participants to engage in a direct conversation with Jon and Brandon about the key role of service in meeting critical challenges facing our communities and actions the White House is taking to support national service and nonprofits.
