National Volunteer Week 2012 - 'Volunteers - Every One Counts'
8 February 2012 at 10:04 am
National Volunteer Week (NVW) will be celebrated this year from the 14-20 May 2012.
National Volunteer Week is the largest celebration of volunteers and volunteerism in Australia, and provides an opportunity to highlight the role of volunteers in communities and to say thank you to the more than 6.4 million Australians who volunteer.
Volunteering Australia (VA) says NVW is celebrated in a number of different ways, depending upon the organisations and individuals involved. Formal ceremonies, morning teas, picnics, exhibitions and a whole range of events are held, as well as more informal events and private acts of recognition, all with the purpose of celebrating the work that volunteers do in the community and thanking volunteers for the contribution they make.
