Kentucky Commission on Volunteerism and Service
The Kentucky Commission on Community Volunteerism and Service (KCCVS) administers Kentucky’s AmeriCorps national service programs. The Commission is a statewide, bipartisan group comprised of 25 members, appointed by the governor, with diverse service and volunteerism backgrounds. The KCCVS is located within the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services.
The mission of the KCCVS is to engage Kentuckians in volunteerism and service to positively impact our communities. The KCCVS engages citizens in community service opportunities that enable volunteers, organizations and businesses to share ideas and effectively collaborate to address Kentucky's needs.
The KCCVS supports volunteerism and national service through programs such as Kentucky AmeriCorps, annual Governor’s Awards for Volunteerism and Service, year-round Volunteer Recognition program, e-newsletter and encouraging participation in national days of service.
The KCCVS' funding is provided by the Corporation for National and Community Service and the Kentucky General Assembly.
