Service, is an integral part of who Pioneers are.  Pioneers move those in need from adversity to achievement through their volunteerism.  We make a real difference in the communities we serve.

During our Centennial, Pioneers have undertaken some special service initiatives in honor of our anniversary including:

Centennial Volunteer Hours Grants Program - Grants were given to selected Pioneers' units to facilitate sparking local partnerships through Pioneers' projects that meet needs specific to individual communities during 2011.

Pioneers Projects in a Box - Pioneers is piloting 3 'projects in a box' - across the United States and Canada in 2009 and 2010.  These projects will also play a part in our service intiatives in 2011 and include:

Pioneers Environmental Initiative:  Sparking a Clean, Green Planet
Pioneers Literacy Project:  Spark the Love of Reading
Pioneers Military Mission:  Sparking Support for Soldiers and their Families

Dish It Up, Feeding Families Healthy Food - an international project carried out by all Pioneers units in September 2011.
