Service Unites, formerly called the Conference on Volunteering and Service, is the world’s largest service-relating convening, bringing together more than 2,500 nonprofit, government, business and civic leaders to gain and share the knowledge, resources and connections needed to galvanize the power of people to create change globally.
The Service Unites conference, powered by Points of Light, provides the singular opportunity for thousands to come together to collaborate and ensure the volunteer sector continues to grow and innovate in this rapidly changing world. Service Unites 2018 will challenge attendees to be a spark that ignites civic culture — a culture in which living a civic life is the norm, not the exception; a culture in which every person is inspired, equipped and mobilized to be a citizen in the fullest sense, to take action that changes the world.
While we may not always agree, we acknowledge there is strength in our differences. As leaders in the volunteer sector, we understand that service unites — bringing people together to solve society’s greatest challenges and build stronger, more resilient communities through volunteer service.
