Federal Interagency Team on Volunteerism (FITV)

The Federal Interagency Team on Volunteerism (FITV) was established in the 1980s as a loose confederation of agencies, including NIFA, to coordinate and exchange information about federally administered volunteer programs focused on preserving natural and cultural resources.

Though an interagency memorandum of understanding, FITV is now a formal team working to advance the common vision and objectives of its members. These individuals are dedicated to public service, volunteerism, and expanding the public's understanding, appreciation, and stewardship of America 's natural and cultural resources.

Through this vibrant partnership of open communication, information sharing, and training, FITV seeks to promote the vitality of its members' individual programs of volunteer service while raising the professional level of all participating agencies' volunteer programming staffs.
