YALIServes 2018

YALIServes highlights and encourages the positive role volunteerism plays in benefiting society. Offering goods, services, and time at no cost not only helps to strengthen communities but promotes self-empowerment.

The 2018 YALIServes service period has ended, but you can still organize a service activity to benefit your community.

Organize

Make everyday Mandela Day and plan your own service activity!

Here’s how to start:

1. Complete the YALI Network Online Course Community Organizing for Action
2. Review the “Joy of Volunteering” video series
3. Plan your event using the YALIServes Event Planning Toolkit

4. Tell us about your service activity using the #YALILearns report form. IMPORTANT: If you participated in YALIServes 2018 and held an event during the service period, you were emailed a special link to report on your event, so please use that form.
