It’s time to celebrate! As a V Team, we’ve logged over one million hours of service to communities across the globe through our Citizen Verizon Volunteer portal. Whether it’s mentoring kids, cleaning up communities, supporting veterans or preserving history through transcriptions, we’ve shown up for others because it’s in our commitment to move the world forward for all through our responsible business plan, Citizen Verizon. Take a moment to reflect and be proud of all we’ve accomplished so far.

As a heads up, the volunteer portal will be closed December 24-31 for year-end reporting. If you’d like to sign up to volunteer between now and the end of the year, you can check out our event lineup at, but you’ll need to sign up before December 24.

Remember that in just one hour, you can help move the world forward. And in 2022, we want to make it even easier to lace up those volunteering boots with a bigger, better Citizen Verizon Volunteer portal. Check out the short video above and stay tuned for the full launch in January 2022. Together we can and will make a difference!

Thank you for your support as we close out our 2021 #ForwardTogether Volunteer commitment.
