National Volunteer Week at WKU
Across our great nation, many campuses and communities celebrate National Volunteer Week in April, and Western Kentucky University's ALIVE Center for Community Partnerships and WKU's Leadership & Volunteerism office collaborates each year to encourage campus and community members to volunteer and celebrate volunteers. This year, we will celebrate National Volunteer Week April 22-26, 2013, one week after the national recognition week. We have activities planned for different days of the week, and we would appreciate your support in making the week a success.
