Date:4/23/2009

WASHINGTON, April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The YWCA USA applauds President Obama's national call for volunteerism and urges all Americans to volunteer their time and talent to improve their local communities.

President Obama recently signed a new $5.7 billion national service bill and called on Americans to learn about volunteer and service opportunities. "We need your service right now, at this moment in history," he said. "I'm not going to tell you what your role should be. That's for you to discover. But I'm asking you to stand up and play your part. I'm asking you to help change history's course."

The YWCA USA includes nearly 300 local associations across the country that offer a range of volunteer opportunities in programs focused on domestic violence, racial justice, child care, job training, and economic empowerment.

"As we celebrate our 150th anniversary this year, the YWCA is the oldest and largest women's organization in the nation that serves women and girls across their lifespan," said Lorraine Cole, Ph.D., CEO of YWCA USA. "We value the incredible work of our YWCA volunteers and hope the President's call for service will encourage even more people to learn about the important work of our local YWCAs and become part of our volunteer network."
