National Volunteer Week Approaching
National Volunteer Week is coming up fast and we wanted to make sure you are aware of it. National Volunteer Week was established to inspire people to volunteer to make their communities a better place, to recognize your current volunteers, and to encourage volunteerism in general. The U.S. and Canada will celebrate National Volunteer Week this year from April 23-29, 2017. Australia’s volunteer week is scheduled for 8-14 May 2017 and the United Kingdom’s is scheduled for 1-7 June 2017.
There are many resources available on the web to help you brainstorm ideas on how to celebrate volunteer week for your organization. One resource for ideas can be found here.
