Strategic Planning

The 2020-2022 Strategic Plan will build on the work of the 2017-2019 Strategic Plan, drafted by the Utah Commission on Service & Volunteerism and staff in 2016. The next Strategic Plan will be drafted through an open and public process that will provide for maximum participation and input from key stakeholders across the state.

About UServeUtah

UServeUtah, the Utah Commission on Service and Volunteerism, was created by state statute in 1994 and is comprised of 20 members representing local government; community based organizations and statewide networks as well as 8 staff. As the state’s central coordinating body for service and volunteerism, the Commission is responsible for developing, implementing, and sustaining a vision and culture of civic engagement and national and community service within the state.


public survey

The public survey serves to inform UServeUtah’s new strategic plan and shape the future of the State’s goals, priorities, and strategies for utilizing service and volunteerism to better address community needs. This plan will be the road-map to building a framework that harnesses and focuses our unique and invaluable resource – the amazing cultural ethic of service and volunteerism that exists among Utah citizens.

Thank you for participating in the public survey! We received 1,233 responses and every county in Utah was represented!


UServeUtah met with organizations all over the state to learn how we can be a better resource for supporting volunteerism and strengthening communities.
