National Volunteer Week 2009

Volunteers at the 2009 Kite Festival,helping TAP put on The Red Balloon puppet show.

April 19-25th is National Volunteer Week. The 2009 National Volunteer Week theme, Celebrating People in Action, captures the meaning behind this signature week: honoring the individuals who take action and solve problems in their communities. This celebratory week will also focus national attention on the impact and power of volunteerism and service as an integral aspect of our civic leadership. Established in 1974 by former President Richard Nixon, National Volunteer Week has grown exponentially in scope each year, drawing the support and endorsement of all subsequent U.S. presidents, governors, mayors and other respected elected officials, as well as corporate and community groups across the country.

Theatre Action Project wants to thank all of its wonderful volunteers who help make our programming possible! Thanks!
