A national agenda on volunteering: Beyond the international year of volunteers
A National Agenda on Volunteering: Beyond the International Year of Volunteers is an important legacy of the International Year of Volunteers (IYV) and is the result of comprehensive national consultations conducted by the IYV National Community Council of Advice (co-chaired by Volunteering Australia and Australian Volunteers International) during 2001.
The National Agenda provides a framework for the future of volunteering.
It outlines six strategic goals and highlights specific outcomes needed to ensure that the gains from the International Year are maximised, volunteers are better supported and volunteering remains an important and sustainable social movement.
A National Agenda on Volunteering: Beyond the International Year of Volunteers was presented to Senator The Hon. Amanda Vanstone, Minister for Family and Community Services (Cth) on International Volunteer Day 2001. Copies of the National Agenda were also distributed to all Commonwealth and State / Territory ministers.
Volunteering Australia is engaged in on-going work with all stakeholders to progress the outcomes sought in the National Agenda on Volunteering.
