International Volunteer Day - December 5, 2022
International Volunteer Day (IVD), mandated by the UN General Assembly, is celebrated around the world on 5 December each year and recognises the outstanding contribution that volunteers make in their communities.
With over 523,000 volunteers in Western Australia, International Volunteer Day is a day for mass celebration. Volunteer involving organisations celebrate the contributions of thousands of volunteers who support their programs and services to the community.
On International Volunteer Day 2022, we celebrate our theme of solidarity through volunteering. For the future of our planet, we must act together and we must act now. This is not an era to stand alone but together, as one, in solidarity with each other.
Annual Garden Party - December 1, 2022
Each year, on the Thursday before International Volunteer Day, Volunteering WA hosts the annual garden party in the stunning gardens of Government House. With more than 500 volunteers attending each year, this is a beautiful event that allows volunteers to connect with each other.
