Volunteering Australia Announces Powerful Theme for NVW2014

Volunteering Australia (VA) today announced the theme for the 25th anniversary year of National Volunteer Week (12 – 18 May) – a theme that points to the power of volunteers and volunteering in Australia.

Celebrate the power of volunteering” will be adopted by volunteering organisations nationally as they plan for celebration events to acknowledge and thank more than six million volunteers who together form a formidable workforce powering many essential community, environmental, sporting and cultural services and supports.

More resources will be launched to support activities across the nation, including:

  • posters showing the diversity of the work volunteers do
  • branded certificates of appreciation which can be handed out at events
  • suggestions of things to do to celebrate the week.

Resources and updates will be posted to the VA website as it becomes available, with alerts also promoted through Twitter and Facebook using #NVW2014.

Reminder: lapel pins are now available – click here to order yours today.

This campaign is proudly supported by Beyond Bank.
