Year to Volunteer

Year to Volunteer is Volunteer Odyssey’s response to the National Civil Rights Museum call to action of “Where do we go from here?” This year-long initiative launched April 5th, 2018 and concludes with Memphis’ Bicentennial in May 2019 to mobilize and foster a lasting culture of volunteerism in our City of Service. The goal is to engage 10,000 volunteers, generate 85,000 hours of service and generate more than $2 million in economic impact.

Volunteerism is part of the heart that connects Memphians to the city, to their neighbors, and to future successes. Volunteering is a way for individuals to give from where they are with whatever they have — if you’re passionate about art, helping youth, keeping our city beautiful or working with homeless populations, Volunteer Odyssey can help you find your ideal volunteer experience.
