National Volunteer Week is a yearly week of recognition for the many people who give generously of their time and resources to a huge variety of causes.

In the United States, Nixon established National Volunteer Week in 1974. Each year, the current president issues a special proclamation in honor of volunteers. A number of awards are presented for outstanding service including the President’s Volunteer Service Award and the Points of Light Tribute Awards.

The week is used to bring awareness to the contributions of volunteers and to encourage more people to donate their time to a local, national, or global cause.
