The Serve Illinois Commission is preparing to devise a new State Service Plan for 2010 to 2013. View the current Service Plan. The new Service Plan will act as a road map for Illinois to increase the number of citizens who give back to their communities. It will also include aspects of the new Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act. In order to gain as much feedback as possible from the public regarding volunteerism and service, Serve Illinois will be hosting four listening sessions throughout the state.
