Please join us for CIVC 2018! This will be a day of learning, sharing ideas, and networking with volunteer managers from dozens of organizations. You won't want to miss this chance to become energized with new ideas to help strengthen your volunteer program.
The goal of the Central Illinois Volunteerism Conference is to provide training and support to those who devote their time and energy to volunteering in their community. The day will include several keynote speakers as well as sessions including: preventing burnout, improving diversity, and strengthening volunteer recognition.
Illinois celebrated the committed individuals who volunteer their time and energy to help others through Senior Corps! Their stories of service display the positive impact one can create and the everlasting change one person can make for another.
Senior Corps volunteers work in countless ways to make communities stronger. Throughout Illinois, Foster Grandparents are mentoring and tutoring students, Senior Companions are helping frail elderly remain in their own homes, and RSVP programs are mobilizing volunteers to make an impact on issues such as disaster relief, the opioid crisis, independent living, and supporting veterans and military families.
In Illinois, 9,600 Senior Corps volunteers have helped over 3,600 Illinois children to read, assisted over 590 seniors stay in their homes, and supported over 1,400 organizations to better serve their communities here in Illinois, and they are contributing in ways such as veterans' assistance, disaster preparedness, and poverty reduction, and the over 2,175,000 Senior Corps hours contributed each year is valued at over $56 million!
