Volunteer Maine, the state service commission, was established in 1994 by Executive Order and under state statute in 1995. The 25 board members of the Commission are appointed by the governor to three-year terms and each represents a specific segment of Maine's volunteer sector.
The Commission builds capacity and sustainability in Maine's volunteer and service communities by funding programs, developing managers of volunteers, raising awareness of sector issues, and promoting service as a strategy.
Through the Professional Development Fund MCCS supports training and education related to Competencies for Managers of Volunteers by awarding funds to cost-share professional development relevant activities.
