NVW 2018


National Volunteer Week 2018

April 15-21, 2018

National Volunteer Week (NVW) is a time to celebrate and thank Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers. Join Volunteer Canada and Investors Group April 15-21, 2018 to recognize the contributions of volunteers in our communities.

This year's theme is: “Celebrate the Value of Volunteering – building confidence, competence, connections and community”.

Volunteering is often seen as a selfless act; a person gives their time, skills, experience, and passion to help others, without expecting anything in return. And while volunteering is a form of service, many volunteers will tell you that “you get more than you give”. From opportunities to develop new skills, to finding deep and meaningful personal connections, the magic of volunteering is that it creates social and economic value for all.

  • The Value of Volunteering Wheel illustrates the many benefits of volunteering to building confidence, competence, connections, and community. 

  • In recogintion of National Volunteer Week 2018, the Conference Board of Canada produced The Value of Volunteering in Canada report. This briefing focuses on the multifaceted benefits to individuals, organisations, communities, and society when Canadians volunteer their time.

  • The NVW 2018 Campaign Kit is full of tips, templates and planning tools to help you plan an awesome NVW event. 

  • Our online gift store offers a variety of affordable gifts to support any volunteer recognition campaign!
