Welcome to 2021!
January seems to have flown by. In the lead up to Australia Day/Invasion Day, I’ve been reflecting on the Aboriginal community’s long history of volunteerism, formal and informal. A high profile example in 2020 saw Adam Goodes call on communities to contribute to the Play for our Lives campaign, and many other groups step up to support their local communities across the country. More information about Indigenous Volunteering can be found on Volunteering Victoria’s website here.
Meanwhile, there are lots of things happening at Volunteering Victoria. Particularly our Building Back Better forum on 23 February 2021 with exciting guest speakers such as Beth Steinhorn (VQ Solutions, USA), Sue Woodward (Justice Connect), Mark Pearce (Volunteering Australia) and Thu-Trang Tran (Volunteer West). Like Biden, we are hoping to build back our sector stronger and can’t wait to get into exciting discussions on the day.
Our training and webinar registration has been released for 2021. We’ve released a new training workshop on how to use the State of Volunteering Report for Advocacy.
Applications for Mentoring Programs and CPD are still open, and provide a structured way for you to approach your professional development in 2021.
