National Volunteer Week

National Volunteer Week 2021

National Volunteer Week - April 18 to 24, 2021

National Volunteer Week is celebrated every year to recognize and thank volunteers for the time and energy they contribute to causes that benefit our community. National Volunteer Week is also an opportunity to promote the benefits of volunteering to individuals and society.

The Grande Prairie Volunteer Services Bureau (GPVSB) is partnering with the City of Grande Prairie to celebrate National Volunteer Week. This year’s theme is “The Value of One. The Power of Many.” We invite individuals, groups, organizations, not-for-profits and charities to join us virtually throughout the week on social media to celebrate the vibrancy and impact of volunteerism in our community and across the region.

This year’s celebration will feature various online activities that include ‘Volunteer Shout Outs’ from the community, volunteer interviews, a special GPVSB National Volunteer Week Newsletter covering the week, a scavenger hunt in collaboration with Grande Prairie Regional Tourism and much more.

We encourage everyone who would like to participate in honouring our volunteer community to send us a volunteer shout out video or message. For Video Shoutouts record a short 30 to 45 seconds video message thanking volunteers.
