One of my goals with the #365ofgoodWR project is to highlight just some of the many amazing things happening right in our own community. There are so many people making these wonderful events, groups, and discussions happen. The Volunteer Action Centre is once again honouring some of these wonderful volunteers with the Volunteer Impact Awards.
The Volunteer Action Centre is currently accepting nominations for the 14th annual Volunteer Impact Awards which recognize inspiring volunteers in our region. There are a variety of categories for the awards, including: Outstanding Youth award, Special Event award, Multicultural award, and Outstanding Leadership award, plus many more. Find out more about the nomination process here. Nominations are due by March 3rd, 2019.
The Volunteer Action Centre is committed to building and developing community capacity for volunteerism through: engaging everyone, developing volunteer opportunities, sharing resources, and building partnerships. They strive to be a "community where everyone is inspired and equipped to make a difference". Learn more about their vision, values, and the work they do on their website.
