This Chooseday, choose to be a change maker.
National Volunteer Week (NVW) is Australia's biggest annual celebration of volunteering. This year, it's being held on 15 - 21 May 2023.
The theme for 2023 is The Change Makers.
NVW acknowledges and celebrates the necessary, important support that millions of volunteers provide to their communities across Australia. During this week, it's highly encouraged to seek out volunteer opportunities and give back to those in need.
"National Volunteer Week 2023 is a celebration of our power to drive change and ensure volunteering is inclusive of all members of the Australian community" (Volunteering Australia, 2023)
