The planning for the third annual Seattle PV Week is well underway and we are looking at another wonderful week of service and community, April 26th - May 2nd. We will be serving lunches in a shelter, handing out lunches on the street, helping to preserve an urban forest, working with families struggling to make ends meet, just to name a few. We expect another busy week and would love to have you join us! We still have a few spaces left, so if you are interested in joining us, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mission Statement: The PV Volunteers are an ecumenical community of diverse individuals. By providing a service experience in a variety of settings, we respond to human need, form relationships and encourage change and growth both in ourselves and with those we serve.

Are you, or do you know of a PV who would be great on our newly forming Youth Leadership Board? Please let us know!
We are putting together a PV Youth Advisory Board to be a voice for the younger volunteers, as well as to provide an opportunity for our wonderful younger PVs to develop their leadership skills. They are the future of the PVs! The board will be meeting in person this March with us and then hopefully a few more times during the year, either via skype or in person. During the year the Board will help with all things related to the PVs, such as programming, decision making, keeping the volunteers connected and fundraising. During the summer, we will be asking the board members when/if they are present to take on a leadership role within the PV Community, such has helping with community day activities and being a resource for volunteers on site. We are currently writing for a grant that would also allow us to provide a small stipend for board members for the time they are serving in the summer. We feel that the PV Youth Advisory Board will be beneficial both for the program and for those willing to be on the board.
Please let us know if you would like to nominate a high school or college-aged PV for the PV Youth Advisory Board. Tell us why you think they would be good and please provide their email so we can contact them to see if they are interested.
Thank you for being a part of this new and exciting venture!
