On June 21, nearly 400 youth volunteers will participate in a total of 13 service projects across the state to commemorate the first annual ServeOhio Day. In its inaugural year, ServeOhio Day exists to encourage and promote hands-on youth volunteer engagement while school is out for the summer. ServeOhio Day intentionally takes place on summer solstice, the day in the year with the longest period of daylight, to maximize participation in a number of service projects ranging from educating at-risk youth about summer safety to community clean-ups.
ServeOhio is pleased to welcome nine organizations into the first annual Skills-Based Volunteerism Training Academy (SBV Academy). The SBV Academy is a 12-month training program that equips Ohio nonprofits with the skills, tools, and resources to effectively engage skills-based volunteers in their organization.

Six Ohio AmeriCorps programs have been awarded more than $4.1 million dollars by our federal partner, the Corporation for National and Community Service, to continue their impact throughout Ohio!
The Ohio LeaderCorps members provide a statewide network in which Ohio’s AmeriCorps members share ideas, experiences, and a spirit of service while taking a leadership position within their AmeriCorps program. The other AmeriCorps members and staff refer to their LeaderCorps member as an AmeriHero because of their above-and-beyond dedication and commitment to their team and to the community.
