Established in 1989, National Volunteer Week (NVW) is the largest celebration of volunteers and volunteerism in Australia. It provides an opportunity to highlight the role of volunteers in society and say thank you to all Australian volunteers.
From 21-27 May 2018, a wide range of volunteer recognition events, celebrations, awards ceremonies, thank you morning teas, parades, professional development sessions, forums, and more, will be held nation-wide.
Mark your calendar! We encourage all volunteers, managers of volunteers, leaders, non-profits, community groups, organisations, academia and government to take part in the week.
