2022-2024 State Service Plan – Public Input
Volunteer Tennessee, the Governor’s commission on volunteerism and service, seeks public input to develop a new State Service Plan that will set the agency’s strategic direction for the next three years. Once developed, the new State Service Plan will advocate service and volunteerism as strategies to meet critical community needs, including service through programs funded under National Service laws.
We value input from stakeholders across Tennessee and invite you to provide your feedback on the daft plan by attending a virtual listening session. Click here for more information on the State Service Plan Virtual Listening Sessions.
The mission of Volunteer Tennessee is to encourage volunteerism and community service. Volunteer Tennessee is the 25-member bipartisan citizen board appointed by the Governor to oversee AmeriCorps and service-learning programs and to advance volunteerism and citizen service to solve community problems in the Volunteer State.
