‘Vibrant Communities and You’ – Our Gift

Our focus at Volunteer Alberta is on helping to create vibrant community by sharing the story of the transformative power of volunteerism and the value of the nonprofit sector in Alberta. So we created this short video, Vibrant Communities and You, highlighting the role volunteers play in creating vibrant community.

We launched this video as our gift to you for National Volunteer Week 2016. Please share it on social media with your community, pass it along, or even play it at your National Volunteer Week event. Find more and download the video here.

Celebrate Volunteerism in Your Community

In many Alberta communities, National Volunteer Week planning for volunteer recognition events and activities has already begun. We encourage citizens, businesses, nonprofits/charities, or volunteer engaging agencies to come together to collaborate and help celebrate the spirit of volunteerism together this April! Check out our list of NVW events occurring across Alberta, or connect with your local Volunteer Centre or municipality to get involved.
