Volunteer BC’s National Volunteer Week

2021 Photo Contest!

Volunteer BC Celebrates National Volunteer Week – April 18 – 24, 2021!

Let’s celebrate the significant contribution of BC’s almost 1.5 million BC volunteers who dedicate over 114 million hours to help others.

National Volunteer Week (NVW) is Canada’s largest annual celebration of volunteers. The theme for 2021, The Value of One, The Power of Many, reflects on the awe-inspiring acts of kindness by millions of individuals.  

Despite the pandemic, volunteers continued to deliver essential services. These volunteers make our communities stronger, especially during times of need.
