On Saturday, April 20, President Barack Obama declared April 21 through April 27 as National Volunteer Week, following in the footsteps of his presidential predecessors in continuing a tradition that began in 1974.

National Volunteer Week is designed to focus national attention on the power and impact of volunteerism across the United States.

"We need not look far to see the power of service," Obama said. "Less than 6 months ago, when Hurricane Sandy bore down on our Atlantic coast, Americans responded with compassion and resolve. As an act of terror struck Boston at the finish line of a great race, and an explosion in Texas tore through a tight-knit community, we stood by each other in times of need. Ordinary men and women have stepped forward and accomplished extraordinary things together, uniting as friends and neighbors and fellow citizens. The strength they have shown reminds us that even in our darkest hours, we look out for each other."

According to the latest data from the federal government's Corporation for National & Community Service, Utah has been leading the country in volunteerism rates for the past four years, driven largely by the religious service of many of the state's residents.

See how all 50 states and the District of Columbia measure up in volunteerism, from dollars spent on service to volunteer hours given per resident and by age.
