report on advocacy

The Massachusetts Service Alliance advocates for the development and promotion of public policies and private initiatives that incorporate service, community service-learning, and volunteerism as effective strategies to address community challenges. We work to increase awareness and recognize the value of service and volunteer initiatives throughout the Commonwealth.

In late summer 2002, we convened some of Massachusetts major leaders in the field of service and volunteerism. This group drafted a visionary piece for the new state administration that highlights the rich history of service throughout the state, and the tremendous strides agencies and organizations have made to incorporate service and volunteerism as an effective means to enact positive change.

We invite you to view our work – ‘Make Massachusetts The #1 State For Service.’ If you would like to join the list of supporters, contact Maureen Curley (Alliance Executive Director) at 617-542-2544 ext. 211 with your name, organization, position, and a brief description of your mission.
