The International Association for Volunteer Effort (IAVE) is calling for practitioners, researchers and academics to apply to present a paper at the 26th IAVE World Volunteer Conference in Abu Dhabi.
In 1970, a group of women from Los Angeles, California and the people they encountered while volunteering, shared a vision to elevate and empower the communities of volunteers that exist around the world. They believed that it is through volunteering that we can “build bridges of international understanding”.

That conference was the birthplace of what soon after became the International Association for Volunteer Effort (IAVE).
