Volunteers across Prince William County continuously serve to enhance quality of life and support the County’s stated vision to be a Community of Choice.
The Prince William Board of County Supervisors recently recognized April 18 – 24 as National Volunteer Week to celebrate volunteers and the impacts they have in their communities and to encourage others to volunteer.
The Virginia Cooperative Extension Prince William (VCE), along with other County programs and community organizations, thrives with the help of volunteers, who increase the number of residents who are touched by programs that help improve quality of life.
The highly trained and diverse cadre of volunteers help VCE staff to provide educational programs on nutrition, protecting the environment, parenting, personal finances and 4-H youth development.
In Fiscal Year 2020, 774 volunteers contributed 30,590 hours to support VCE. The time the volunteers donated is equivalent to 15.6 full-time employees, saving the County $834,189. Those volunteers served 19,466 County residents through VCE’s education and outreach programs.
In recognizing the week, in partnership with VCE, the Board thanked the volunteers for lending their time, talent, effort and support encouraging others to consider volunteering.
