About the Conference on Volunteering and Service

Points of Light's Conference on Volunteering and Service is the largest service-related convening of nonprofit, government, business and civic leaders in the world. Each year, thousands of people who really care about the future of volunteer service convene in one place - to learn from, share with, and get inspired by one another - to work together to increase the number of volunteers in the world and the impact of the work they do.


As the world's largest service-related convening, Conference brings more than 3,500 nonprofit, government, business and civic leaders together to shape the future of volunteerism and to galvanize the power of people to create change globally.
