What's Cookin' Today Hour ONE:
AMERICA’S DETERMINATION TO TACKLE LOCAL CHALLENGES SPANS GENERATIONS
On Tuesday, August 9, the federal Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) will release new research illustrating the commitment that volunteers made to fill critical voids in our communities in 2010. According to the annual Volunteering In America report, volunteers served at least 8.1 billion hours across the nation last year – giving time, expertise and “sweat hours” valued at nearly $173 billion. In this radio media tour, CNCS’ acting CEO, Robert Velasco, and Chief Strategy Officer, Heather Peeler, will spotlight where volunteerism is strongest and how service can help communities tackle their toughest challenges while expanding opportunity. Velasco and Peeler will also share some surprising results about how Americans of all ages are giving back to the community.
Robert Velasco is the acting CEO of CNCS, the federal agency that engages 5.5 million Americans in service through its Senior Corps, AmeriCorps and Learn and Serve America programs. CNCS also leads President Obama’s national call to service initiative, United We Serve. • Heather Peeler is the Chief Strategy Officer for CNCS. In this role, she is responsible for the development and implementation of the federal agency’s 2011-2015 Strategic Plan, which provides a roadmap for using national service to address critical challenges facing our communities and our nation. Heather also oversees the agency’s research, including the Volunteering in America report.
