National Volunteer Week at WKU
Across our great nation, many campuses and communities celebrate National Volunteer Week in April, and four Western Kentucky University's offices are collaborating to encourage campus and community members to volunteer and celebrate volunteers. This year, we will celebrate National Volunteer Week April 7-12, 2014. We have activities planned for different days of the week, and we would appreciate your support in making the week a success.
National Volunteer Week is a partnership between the WKU ALIVE Center for Community Partnerships, WKU Student Activities: Leadership & Volunteerism, Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science, and Housing and Residence Life.
