What are Volunteers?
Volunteers are individuals who believe people can make a difference and they prove it. They give their time, resources and care, expecting nothing in return apart from the chance to give back, make a difference and perhaps develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge.
International Volunteer Day is annually celebrated on 5 December | What the Day is About…
- An opportunity for volunteers and volunteer organisations to raise awareness of and gain understanding for the contribution they make to their communities.
- A unique chance for volunteers and organisations to celebrate their efforts, to share their values and to promote their work among their communities, NGOs, UN agencies, government authorities and the private sector.
- Celebrating volunteerism with rallies, parades, volunteer fairs, group clean-ups, various types of donations, conferences, exhibitions, fundraising, workshops and volunteer recognition events.
