National Volunteer Week 2024: ‘Something for Everyone’
We are pleased to announce the theme for National Volunteer Week 2024 is ‘Something for Everyone’.
National Volunteer Week 2024 will recognise the diverse passions and talents everyone brings to the act of volunteering.
It’s an invitation to explore the myriad of opportunities available, emphasising that there’s a place for everyone in the world of volunteering. Whether you’re drawn to environmental causes, community outreach, education, or beyond, there’s a place where your unique skills and interests can flourish.
Let’s come together during National Volunteer Week, embracing this theme to showcase the vast spectrum of possibilities and the transformative impact that emerges when everyone finds their meaningful role in making a difference.

National Volunteer Week Events
National Volunteer Week Events will take place from 20-26 May 2024, to say thank you to the millions of Australians who volunteer their time. We invite you to join in the events across the country.
Places to start your volunteering journey include the GoVolunteer website, contacting your State and Territory volunteering peak body or by approaching organisations in your local community.
In the lead up to National Volunteer Week we will be releasing new 2024 lapel pins with the theme, Something for Everyone. Say thank you to your volunteers with high quality, volunteer-specific gifts, while supporting Volunteering Australia in advocating for the volunteering sector in Australia.
As well as the hugely popular lapel pins we will have pens, lanyards and post-it notes. We will again have a very limited number of ‘V’ volunteer anniversary pins for volunteers who have volunteered for 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 years as well as the highly sought-after Red V lapel pins.
