Sacramento, CA Service Plan
Volunteer Sacramento aims to make Sacramento the most caring city in the nation through service. It strives to unleash the spirit of service throughout the Sacramento Region by encouraging and empowering Sacramentans of every age to contribute to the health and well-being
of their neighbors and their neighborhoods. Volunteer Sacramento will set a new standard for community involvement in tackling the city’s toughest problems, and it will promote service as a core part of what it means to be a citizen of the most caring city in the nation. The priority initiatives included in this plan build on the long tradition of volunteerism in Sacramento that contribute so much to the life and health of our City. Like all Cities of Service, Volunteer Sacramento focuses on “Impact Volunteering”- volunteer strategies that target community needs, use best practices, and set clear outcomes and measures to gauge progress.
Volunteer Sacramento initiatives fall into four (4) categories:
1. Help more Sacramentans connect to service opportunities more easily
2. Create or elevate volunteer opportunities that address the City’s most urgent needs
3. Create more meaningful opportunities for young people to serve
4. Measure progress against clear goals; create accountability for results
