RAVN events

Connect with like-minded returned volunteers online and in-person.

Our alumni events bring returned volunteers from all chapters of the volunteer program together for online and in-person networking and professional development opportunities. In-person events are offered in capital cities and some regional centres throughout the year where COVID-19 regulations permit. We hope to see you at an alumni event soon!

This page will be updated as new events become available, so be sure to check back frequently for any event updates. You can also find out about alumni events near you on your state or territory's Facebook group and in the RAVN Update e-newsletter.
