Volunteer Recognition Resources

Volunteering is Empathy in Action

National Volunteer Week  April 18-24, 2021 , April 24-30, 2022

The National Volunteer Week theme for 2021, The Value of One, The Power of Many, reflects on the awe-inspiring acts of kindness by millions of individuals AND the magic that happens when we work together towards a common purpose.  Stay tuned as we look forward to National Volunteer Week 2022. 

The Volunteer Recognition Tool helps volunteer managers plan meaningful recognition activities. Volunteers take the quiz to find out what their language of recognition is, and then share the results with their manager.   

Volunteer Recognition study outlines best practices in volunteer recognition and the key drivers that lead to volunteer retention.

 Get inspired:  Volunteer Markham and “organizations from coast to coast to coast joined in celebrating Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers virtually in April by sharing photos, videos and kind words on social media.  Check out their volunteer recognition posts on  Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and YouTube.”
