What’s the value of Volunteering?

People + Their Time = Valuable Effort

Recently we were asked by a new school starting a S.A.F.E. TEAM program about what numbers were out there to prove the value.  That caused us to run a Google search and we found two excellent sources.

1.  Corporation for National & Community Service has a published document called Volunteering in America from 2007.  Great stats including regional/state data.  link

2.  To learn specifically about the dollar value of volunteerism go to  Independent Sector's site.  link
