Volunteers, non-profits and charities strengthen and build communities. To succeed we must be aware of trends and be ready to take advantage of all the opportunities. Themes this year are – building a diverse leadership network, engaging youth volunteers, embracing new technology and opportunity to hear from the Community Gaming Grants Branch.
