Serve: Ways to Give Back in 2021

Consistent with our vision, we want to give back to society for our landmark anniversary, and we’ll need your help.

Beginning September 22, we’ll close out our centennial with 100 days of service to make a coordinated impact on our communities.

We hope you will do something to make a difference in those final 100 days of the year, but don’t feel limited to that window. Any community service during our centennial year is welcome and contributes to our goal to make a positive impact on society in this special year.

We are currently collaborating with our chapters and sections, partners, and other aligned organizations to identify various opportunities for coordinated involvement, and those will be posted here when available.

Share Your Achievements

During and after your own service initiative it is important you engage your colleagues, other APTA members, and potential members. It is our goal to be inclusive of the entire profession when we’re giving back and what a great way to do good while at the same time engaging other physical therapists.
