Since the Bush-era EO was passed, the Dept. of Homeland Security has established a Volunteer Community Service program. We have a directive that allows up to 40 hours of administrative leave for mission-related volunteer activities (e.g., USCG Auxiliary, rebuilding homes in the Gulf Coast, etc.). In fact, we have a team going back to Mississippi Gulf Coast for the 5th year to rebuild homes with Habitat for Humanity of the Gulf Coast. Most volunteer opportunities are sponsored by our Homeland Young Professionals, an in-house employee association.
