Every year National Volunteer Week (NVW) is celebrated across Canada to thank the 24 million volunteers who give their time in support of multitudes of causes and services and to recognize the valuable role of volunteer-supported non-profits, organizations and other initiatives.
This year National Volunteer Week is the week of April 16th to 22nd.
The Grande Prairie Regional Association of Volunteer Organizations (VolunteerGP) is excited to continue celebrating volunteers and not-for-profit organizations in our community.
Ways to celebrate this year:
National Volunteer Week is the perfect time to celebrate your organization and Volunteers!
We invite member agencies to join the NVW festivities by picking up a Celebration Package.
Each Package includes a list of activities and suggestions organizations can use to celebrate!
Packages will be ready to pick up from our office (101, 10101 100 Ave, Grande Prairie, AB) starting April 3rd, 2023.
