The National Strategy for Volunteering is now underway! Volunteering Australia has opened Expressions of Interest for two Working Groups: the Volunteer Management and Corporate Volunteering Working Groups.
The Volunteer Management Working Group will bring together volunteering professionals to discuss how the National Strategy for Volunteering can be informed by best-practice volunteer involvement. Volunteering Australia recognises there is considerable volunteer management and leadership experience throughout Australia, and we want to ensure this expertise is reflected in the National Strategy.
The Corporate Volunteering Working Group will be comprised of representatives from Australian companies with corporate volunteering programs. Corporate volunteering (also known as employee volunteering) provides a critical contribution to the community through the provision of vital surge capacity and professional skills. This Working Group will consider how the National Strategy for Volunteering can recognise and amplify the role of corporate volunteering in Australia.
These Working Groups will play a pivotal role in ensuring the National Strategy for Volunteering has a strong foundation for best-practice volunteer involvement.
We can’t wait for you to join us on this journey of reimagining the future of volunteering.
