National Volunteer Week (NVW) is an annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation's volunteers.
The 2021 theme is: Recognise. Reconnect. Reimagine. which acknowledges that it is time to:
- RECOGNISE, celebrate and thank volunteers for the vital role they play in making our communities stronger, especially during times of need, crisis or isolation.
- RECONNECT to what is important by giving our time to help others, our local community or a cause we value.
- REIMAGINE how we better support volunteers and the organisations they help so that they can continue to do the necessary work that they do.
Over it's 40+ years, Read Write Now has trained thousands of volunteers to tutor adults in the community wanting to brush up on their reading and writing skills. With little fanfare attached to their role, these extraordinary people help others in the community who want to improve their opportunities in the workforce, help their families and be more involved in their community. Read Write Now volunteers are the best. Thank you.
