National Volunteer Week is an opportunity to celebrate the vibrancy and impact of volunteerism in your community and across our country.
National Volunteer Week 2017 was April 23-29.
National Volunteer Week is when we can all take time to recognize volunteers and celebrate the power of volunteerism in our community.
Join in next year, April 15-21, 2018!
‘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. Find more and download the video here.
Celebrate Volunteerism in Your Community
We encourage citizens, businesses, nonprofits/charities, or volunteer engaging agencies to come together to collaborate and help celebrate the spirit of volunteerism together each April! Connect with your local Volunteer Centre or municipality to get involved.
Volunteer Canada shares incredible tools and resources each year that you can use to celebrate National Volunteer Week. You might also be interested in the 2013 Volunteer Recognition study – find out more about how to recognize volunteers in the best way possible!
National Volunteer Week Grant
Thanks to support from the Government of Alberta, we assist community National Volunteer Week recognition events and activities across Alberta with the National Volunteer Week Grant. Every year we focus on helping as many communities as possible to celebrate the amazing people who volunteer.
Applications will be available for National Volunteer Week 2018 in January.
