About Volunteer Week Hawaii

Volunteer Week Hawaii launched in 2018 as our local take on National Volunteer Week (celebrated annually since 1974) and has since become the largest volunteer focused campaign in Hawaii and the largest state level celebration of National Volunteer Week in the United States.

As a result of our impact on Hawaii’s coummunities the Hawaii State Legislature recognized us in an official House Resolution in 2018. In 2019 Governor Ige and Mayors Caldwell, Kim, Kawakami, and Victorino issued Proclamations in support of Volunteer Week Hawaii. In 2022, Governor Ige signed our bill to recognize April as Volunteer Month in Hawaii beginning in 2023.

This statewide, cross-sector campaign brings together residents, visitors, nonprofits, businesses, schools, and government agencies in a concerted effort to take grassroots action that serves our communities. 

Our collective impacts and volunteer hours are captured through the Aloha+ Challenge, Hawaii’s local framework to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
