This exciting year is the perfect opportunity to build support for volunteering and to celebrate the amazing achievements of volunteers in our sector. The legacies of past years (for example International Women's Year, International Literacy Year, and the International Year of the Child) have been substantial and have resulted in vastly increased public and government attention to each cause.
Community Literacy of Ontario and Laubach Literacy Ontario are very grateful to the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities and the National Literacy Secretariat for their support of several International Year of Volunteers projects sponsored by our organizations.
Tips for celebrating the International Year of Volunteers:
