About the Conference

Points of Light's Conference on Volunteering and Service is the largest 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.

Detroit reminds us it is the strength of people uniting in service that can change communities. It is out of challenging times that we demonstrate the determination and unfailing spirit of Detroit - a remarkable city and extraordinary example of community resiliency and citizen leadership.

Join us in Detroit for the 2016 Conference on June 27-29, as we showcase how the city has become a laboratory for social innovation, educational opportunity, long-term economic advancement, social equity, cultural expression and community leadership. Together, we'll examine how the next generation of changemakers is creating new pathways for direct action and unleashing their power to make a difference in the world.

Venue - Cobo Center (1 Washington Blvd. Detroit, MI 48226)
