Cesar E. Chavez Youth Initiated Service-Learning Mini-Grants






The Governor's Conference on Service, Volunteerism and Mentoring scheduled for January 28-29, 2004 has been postponed. Given the current transition in the Governor’s Office, a decision was made to change the conference date in order to receive vital support from Governor-Elect Schwarzenegger. The Governor’s Office on Service and Volunteerism (GO SERV), the conference host, is cautiously optimistic that the new administration will take an active role in supporting the conference. A new conference date will hopefully be announced soon. Check here for updates here or visit www.goserv.ca.gov
