PNVSCA signs a partnership agreement with the Australian Volunteers Program

The Philippine National Volunteer Service Coordinating Agency (PNVSCA) and the Australian Volunteers Program have entered into a partnership agreement through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to formalise mutual collaboration on national volunteering activities in the country. This significant agreement, which spans over a period of two years, aims to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes and work together to deliver a range of activities, including but not limited to:

  • Developing and delivering targeted and strategic mutually agreed innovation initiatives
  • Connecting with global partners to facilitate learning exchanges on volunteerism and volunteering practices
  • Participating in an open exchange of knowledge and ideas for accelerating national volunteering
  • Seeking opportunities to collaborate with other International Volunteer Sending Organisations to support national volunteering initiatives

A workshop was also conducted to draft an action plan for the two-year partnership. The activities identified during the workshop provide key action points that will determine the success of the partnership. The action plan highlights collaboration activities that would include research, innovation, learning exchange and private sector engagement to boost volunteerism in the country.

The program will continue to explore ways to support volunteerism in the Philippines and other partner countries. Activities set in the action plan and MOU will contribute to the program’s learning on how to support volunteering infrastructures of government and peak bodies.

This partnership initiative is part of the Global Volunteering Accelerator workstream.
