Hello and welcome to the Governor’s Office of Community Service,

Thank you for visiting our website! If you are visiting for the first time, or are back again, we’re glad you are here.

From the prairies to the mountains, from Montana’s busy towns to quiet places, our great state has a long legacy of neighbors helping neighbors. Service is part of our identity, and it’s not Republican or Democrat, it’s a reflection of our shared values as Montanans and as Americans.

Across the state, each of us represents diverse service. Many of us volunteer with schools, nonprofits, and local government. We are mentors, we serve on boards, we walk and run for fundraisers, we show up to clean parks and trails, we organize food and clothing drives, and show up when emergency calls – many serve and give from behind the scenes. Since 1994, over 10,000 of us have served in national service with AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, and VISTA. And many brave Montanans have worn the uniform of our country as members of the Armed Forces – including those serving today.

National service and community volunteerism is transforming lives and landscapes in Montana communities every day. Hundreds of AmeriCorps members and thousands of community volunteers improve outcomes for Montana’s children, elders, and landscapes by giving time and energy with commitment and unique abilities. National service and volunteerism transforms the lives of those served, and those who contribute, it’s a beautiful thing. The best part of it is, you can be a part of it. Look around our site to learn about the many opportunities to serve with AmeriCorps, recognize impactful volunteers with a ServeMontana Award, apply for a Youth ServeMontana Scholarship, learn more about organ donation, and to read the State Service Plan.

Montanans know firsthand that service is critical to the fabric of our communities. Thank you to all who serve in national, public, and military service and to all the community volunteers, your time and energy is appreciated.

Reach out to the Governor’s Office of Community Service staff to share your service story, and to learn more about getting involved in your community. We look forward to hearing from you!
