International Volunteer Day 2020

Let's acknowledge and thank volunteers for the difference they make!

Volunteers are committed advocates of making the world a better place.

From local community volunteers to those on the frontline of natural disasters, volunteers are quintessential to humanity – the billion volunteers globally (714,138 in Queensland) bring communities together. And the world is not only changed by people who share the volunteer spirit, volunteers, showing up and stepping up, become global citizens who highlight our common human future on this planet.

International Volunteer Day (IVD), on 5 December, has been designated by the United Nations in 1985 as an international observance day to celebrate the power and potential of volunteerism. It is an opportunity for volunteers, and volunteer-involving organisations, to raise awareness of, and gain recognition for, the contribution they make to their communities.
