Service Event Application for Torchbearers Volunteers Request Form

Thank you for considering Torchbearers volunteers for your service event. Our members are passionate about making meaningful contributions to the Greater Akron community by volunteering their time. To ensure that organizations receive enough volunteers for their events and to ensure that the event corresponds best with our mission and vision, we must be deliberate in which events are chosen each month as our Torchbearers service events.

To best support our organization’s mission and vision, the Community Impact Committee (CIC) intentionally selects two events per month to award our members with additional service points. Our members receive service points for all volunteer opportunities that they participate in, however, they receive more points for the CIC selected service events.

Each event that is approved by CIC will be assigned a Service Event Liaison that will reach out to you to seek out any additional details, provide you with the information about the volunteers that have RSVP'D, and provide you with the number of volunteers that have committed to your event. There may also be a CIC member reaching out to you after the event is approved by CIC to clarify the details of your submission.

It is important to the Community Impact Committee to support events that allow our members to serve together so they can develop and foster relationships with their fellow members at the event. It is also important to the Community Impact Committee that there is a mix between the types of service events each month, (i.e. direct service or fundraiser.) Applicants should note that the amount of Torchbearers that will sign up to volunteer at the service event is not guaranteed and may vary year to year depending on the makeup of the membership.

All additional service events that were not selected by CIC for that month, will be advertised in our weekly newsletter to our membership. If you were not selected, you will receive an email from a CIC Co-Chair indicating why you were not selected. You may review the 12 criteria at the end of this page.

If you have any additional questions regarding this process or your event submission, please contact the Community Impact Committee Co-Chairs at

Thank you for your commitment to bettering the community and we look forward to receiving your application submission.
