World Service Week: Empowering Global Communities Through Collective Action

It’s that time of year again, USANA Family—World Service Week!

World Service Week, happening this year from June 9th – 16th, is an inclusive annual event that invites individuals from all corners of the world to join together and create a positive impact in their communities. While it originated as a USANA initiative, its purpose has expanded to include anyone who shares the common goal of making a difference, regardless of their affiliation.

For those who haven’t heard of World Service Week, here’s more context for what it is, its evolution into a global movement, and the meaningful initiatives that have made it a resounding success.

How did World Service Week start?

In 2017, a dedicated group of individuals within the USANA family recognized the importance of community engagement and service. From this shared vision, World Service Week was born—a designated period focused on inspiring volunteerism and fostering positive change.

Initially, it centered around the USANA community in the United States. However, its impact and significance quickly transcended boundaries and locations, prompting the organizers to extend the invitation to individuals worldwide.

Uniting Global Communities for a Common Cause

With each passing year, World Service Week has become a global beacon, uniting individuals from diverse backgrounds under a common purpose. People from all walks of life eagerly anticipate this special week of service, knowing that it is an opportunity to contribute meaningfully to their communities.

The inclusive nature of World Service Week allows individuals from anywhere around the world to participate, regardless of their affiliation with USANA or any other organization.
