Call for NVW Volunteering Ambassador Nominations - Helping to celebrate volunteering in our region!

Attention all Volunteer Coordinators, and/or Volunteer-Involving Organisations across our Barwon Region!

Do you know of a volunteer doing incredible, innovative work in their community?  Then we want to hear from you!

Based on our success in the past few years, genU in partnership with Volunteering Geelong, and now also Humans in Geelong, are again searching for 6-8 volunteers that would be willing to share their inspiring volunteering story with us, and act as ambassadors in order to raise awareness about the power of volunteering during National Volunteer Week (NVW) May 18-24, 2020.

We know that the year 2020 has already delivered a large number of difficult, high impact and life-changing events, to many communities across our Barwon Region.

We know that volunteers continue to play a huge part in responding to the needs of their communities during these challenging times.  This NVW we want to ensure that we celebrate and share the inspiring stories of volunteers who are going above and beyond, and by doing so are “changing communities, changing lives.” 

At genU we remain committed to celebrating volunteers and inspire others to #getinvolved
This is why we are calling for nominations to recognise and thank volunteers that continue to support their community amid the current challenges we are facing!

Let’s celebrate the power of volunteering together!

How do we intend to CELEBRATE volunteering? 

genU, in partnership with Volunteering Geelong and Humans in Geelong, are searching for nominations of brave, resilient and inspiring volunteers who are willing to share their story on social media, and act as Volunteer Ambassadors during National Volunteer Week (NVW), 18-24 May 2020 #NVW2020.
