Mission Statement

To Strengthen Ohio Communities through Service and Volunteerism

Description

The Ohio Legislature established The Ohio Commission on Service and Volunteerism (ServeOhio) in 1994, under the original name of The Governor’s Community Service Commission. ServeOhio operates under authority pursuant to Section 121.40 of the Ohio Revised Code. Initially, ServeOhio was purposed specifically to administer grants in Ohio under the federal National & Community Service Trust Act of 1993. Today, the largest of these grants is the AmeriCorps program, where Ohio currently has 26 partner organizations and over 700 AmeriCorps members. The broad mission remains the same - to strengthen Ohio communities through various types of service and volunteerism.
