Happy International Volunteer Day!

A message from Zoe Mander-Jones, Australian Volunteers Program Director, to returned volunteers on International Volunteer Day

On this day, International Volunteer Day, I invite you to take a moment to reflect on your experience as an international volunteer, the work that you've contributed to and the connections you’ve made along the way.

I want to take this moment to also personally thank you for your contribution to the Australian Volunteers Program, as one of our treasured returned volunteers. Your efforts have helped to support locally-led development and to foster friendships and understanding across cultures.

Please know that you are most welcome to and encouraged to apply to volunteer with us again! You have such a unique set of skills and insights that I know would benefit many of our partner organisations overseas.

Now to celebrate International Volunteer Day, we have produced a video that is being shared with volunteers, partner organisations, politicians, and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade across our region.  

Please enjoy the video on Facebook, InstagramTwitter or LinkedIn and if you're as proud as we are, share with your friends and family.

Happy International Volunteer Day!
