National Volunteer Week - April 15-21, 2018

Celebrating the Value of Volunteering – National Volunteer Week: April 15-21, 2018

National Volunteer Week - April 15-21, 2018
National Volunteer Week – April 15-21, 2018

This year, National Volunteer Week is recognized from April 15-21.  During this designated week, we celebrate and thank the more than 12 million volunteers across Canada who contribute to their communities in countless ways.

While many volunteers are the first to say that they get more from the experience than they give, those working in the service sector recognize the importance and value of those who give of their time, skills, experience and passion to help others without expecting anything in return.

This year’s theme is “Celebrate the Value of Volunteering – building confidence, competence, connections and community.”  From opportunities to develop new skills, to finding deep and meaningful personal connections, volunteering creates social and economic value for all.

For years, Children’s Aid Societies have benefited from the assistance of volunteers; individuals who have historically played an essential role in child welfare across the province.  As a volunteer with a Children’s Aid Society, you may be involved with driving children to school or to appointments, offering guidance as a mentor, providing your expertise as a member of the Board of Directors or agency committee, or assisting with the planning or execution of a fundraising event.  No matter the role, each volunteer is important and their contributions are vital to helping societies be successful in the work they do.

At Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society, which serves the communities of Peterborough City and County, City of Kawartha Lakes and County of Haliburton, 65 individuals donated their time as either board or committee members or volunteer drivers in fiscal 2017-18.  “KHCAS Volunteers are truly amazing!  The service that our Volunteers provide, with such dedication and commitment, assists us in working for safe kids and strong families in our community,” said Tania Nanni, KHCAS Volunteer Coordinator.  Executive Director Jennifer Wilson added, “Volunteers continue to be at the core of the organization’s work.  They support programs, staff and most importantly children and families receiving services from KHCAS.  The motivation to volunteer comes from within.  Volunteers surround children with caring, compassion and support, and they epitomize the true sense of community.”
