NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK CELEBRATION
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. These “shout outs” (video and/or written) need to be into Brian Carter (communications@volunteerrgp.com) by 9:00 am, Monday, April 5, 2021. The video “Shout Outs” would be no more than 30 seconds in duration. The written “Shout Outs” should be brief but we haven’t identified an actual word limit so there is some flexibility. For information on making your submission visit https://www.volunteergp.com/events/national-volunteer-week.

The National Volunteer Week scavenger hunt will start on April 18 and end at midnight on April 24, with great prizes to be won. More details on the scavenger hunt will be available closer to National Volunteer Week at https://www.cityofgp.com/events.
