Overview

An unprecedented pro bono effort by Jossey-Bass Publishers and Chronicle Books.

Americans young and old, rich and poor, in cities and in rural areas, from all faiths and races, come together to volunteer.

Voices from the Heart is a tribute to this spirit of giving and the ideal of community. Author Brian O'Connell and editor Rebecca Buffam Taylor present a moving portrait of compassion at work. We meet volunteers from across the country and hear their passionate voices speak about what they do and why. Compelling images by leading photojournalists add to the story of each volunteer's work and its rich rewards.

A nonprofit joint Andeavor by Chronicle Books, Jossey-Bass Publishers, and major national foundations, profits from the sale of Voices from the Heart will go to INDEPENDENT SECTOR, a nonprofit group dedicated to America's volunteer organizations.

Everyone who gives time and effort to help other people or important causes will appreciate this homage to the manifold benefits of volunteering.
