What is Work On Wilmington?

Work On Wilmington is organized each year by the current class of Leadership Wilmington.  Work on Wilmington brings people together to roll up their sleeves and tackle community problems in just four hours. The results are amazing. Projects that would normally take many times longer are completed in just half a day.

Volunteers participate in a variety of service projects throughout the community with a common goal: Make Wilmington a better place to live.

Work On Wilmington seeks to energize the volunteer spirit in all of us by following the successful model active in more than 50 cities across the United States.

Work On Wilmington works in partnership with community organizations and agencies to create meaningful, hands on service projects that improve quality of life and achieve tangible results.

Who started Work On Wilmington?

Work On Wilmington was initiated by the 2006 Class of Leadership Wilmington, a civic leadership development program of the Wilmington Chamber Foundation. Leadership Wilmington's goal is to produce creative leaders for our community by educating participants about the community they live in, encouraging them to get involved, and providing the opportunity for meaningful action.
