Volunteer opportunities are available
Does the VA have opportunities during Volunteer Week, which begins today?
Answer: VA's voluntary service is the largest volunteer program in the federal government. It matches the volunteer to the assignment, provides orientation and training for volunteers, and maintains an awards program to recognize volunteer service.
Over the past 59 years, VA volunteers have donated more than 663.5 million hours of service worth an estimated $11.4 billion.
