The countdown is on to the BIGGEST celebration of volunteers in Australia!


Did you know that over 6 million Australians volunteer every year? That’s 36% of the adult population, let alone the thousands and thousands of young people who give of themselves to their communities every day.

The power of volunteering to change lives and communities is what underpins everything we do at Awards Victoria, so we’re rolling up our sleeves, saying ‘Thanks a Million’ and celebrating National Volunteer Week. Taking place on 13-19 May 2013, it’s the single biggest celebration of volunteers and the impact they make in Australia.

To say ‘Thanks a Million’, Awards Victoria has some special projects planned all week! Check out the details below for more info:

Nationa Volunteer Week
NVW Feature Volunteers

We’ve selected 6 Feature Volunteers to shine a light on the power, impact and diversity of young people volunteering. Each day we’re feature a different volunteer to say thank you and to inspire others to action. The Feature Volunteers’ stories will go live on Facebook and the website each day – show your support and get behind these awesome volunteers!
