Volunteer Tennessee, First Lady Maria Lee Launch Volunteer Portal

Today, Volunteer Tennessee and Tennessee first lady Maria Lee announced the official launch of the statewide volunteer opportunities portal, the Tennessee Serves Network. The Tennessee Serves Network is a statewide collaboration of volunteer centers dedicated to bringing people and community together through an easily accessible online portal. The portal launch also marks the second anniversary of the first lady’s volunteer initiative, Tennessee Serves.

Through the Tennessee Serves Network, community organizations can post current volunteer opportunities and request volunteer assistance based on skills and interests. Potential volunteers can then search a variety of service opportunities; examples include writing letters to homebound seniors, food distribution, outdoor clean up and beautification, to helping communities rebuild after a disaster. The Tennessee Serves Network is hosted by Volunteer Tennessee.

“Tennessee Serves was launched to engage Tennesseans in the everyday ways they can serve their neighbors and give back to their communities,” said Maria Lee, first lady of Tennessee. “Today, on the second anniversary of Tennessee Serves, we are thrilled to partner with Volunteer Tennessee to officially unveil the Tennessee Serves Networks and introduce a new way Tennesseans can locate available volunteer opportunities based on their passions and abilities.”

The volunteer portal is also accessible through the MyTN app, the state’s mobile app that compiles multiple state of Tennessee services into one convenient resource.
