||About the KCCVS
The Kentucky Commission on Community Volunteerism and Service (KCCVS) is a statewide, bi-partisan group comprised of at least 15 members, appointed by the governor, with diverse service and volunteerism backgrounds.
The KCCVS actively 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 hosts a number of annual statewide activities designed to encourage volunteer and service program development. The KCCVS' funding is provided by the Corporation for National and Community Service and the Kentucky General Assembly.
||Development of the KCCVS
The Kentucky Commission on Community Volunteerism and Service was established by Executive Order in 1994. The KCCVS serves as a conduit for federal funds to support community service and provide leadership for and coordination of volunteer activities throughout the state.
Kentucky's commitment to volunteerism and service is supported and strengthened by the General Assembly which continues to provide general fund appropriations enabling the Commission and its work to grow and thrive.
The commission has continued to expand its range of programs and services to the Commonwealth through AmeriCorps, Learn and Serve and professional development grants to fund conferences and training.
Volunteers and members provide a range of services throughout the commonwealth.
The Cabinet for Health and Family Services is the parent agency for the commission, providing administrative support and oversight.
To promote all Kentuckians working together to meet actual community needs in a way that fosters personal, family and community pride and an enduring ethic of volunteerism and service.
