Volunteer Stories

SUBMIT YOUR STORY of VALUE AND POWER for National Volunteer Week 2021

The Volunteer Action Centre Waterloo Region invites YOU to share this week set aside annually to recognize the significant contributions of volunteers in our community, province, and nation. The passion and skills of volunteers enhance the abilities of organizations and their teams to deliver valuable programs to communities that would not be possible if we relied solely on paid positions.

2021 is the 20th Anniversary of the International Year of the Volunteer (IYV). In 2001 the United Nations chose to profile the importance of volunteerism. That year changed public awareness and respect for volunteers around the world. That honour of volunteers significantly changed how we understand the important role of the volunteer.

National Volunteer Week is celebrated by Volunteer Canada in partnership with over 200 volunteer centres across Canada, reinvigorating the original theme The Value of One, the Power of Many.

Please submit before April 9, 2021
