Imagine that you are on a trip visiting your nation’s capital, and about to step into one of the highlights listed on your “places to visit.” Would that list include an interactive museum space that’s dedicated to volunteering and service? In this Voices, former U.S. Congressman Brian Baird reports on how he is bringing his vision of a National Museum and Center for Service (NMCFS) to reality - an idea that would have thrilled Engage Co-Founder Susan J. Ellis, an early and steadfast advocate of a museum focused on volunteering. “The NMCFS will also be an empowering place,” Baird argues. “With a goal of inspiring visitors to engage in service themselves, the NMCFS will provide multiple opportunities for people to connect with service projects and organizations, thereby enhancing participation, rejuvenating membership, and expanding contributions to organizations across the full spectrum of service.”
