 and Rotary is very relevant to this
National Volunteer Week (NVW) is the annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers. At this uncertain time we feel that it is more important than ever to recognise and acknowledge Australia’s volunteers  including Rotarians of course
We understand that the many events that are usually held during National Volunteer Week will be postponed or cancelled, however we encourage all organisations who wish to thank their volunteers to consider moving their events to an online format or acknowledge volunteers in different ways through social media or other digital formats.
Below we have provided ideas, inspiration and tips to celebrate
We invite you to put your hand up and thank all the volunteers around Australia by waving a special smile of appreciation from your own home. Upload your wave photo to social media and share using the hashtags #NVW2020 and #waveforvolunteers, and tag Volunteering Australia.
Thanks to technology you can hold a virtual thank you event for volunteers during National Volunteer Week. There are so many ideas for a virtual event from a simple coffee catch up to holding a dinner party. We have listed some ideas to get you started.
Looking for a virtual way to thank your volunteers? Through the Volunteering Australia website you can send a free online Certificate of Appreciation directly to your volunteer’s email.
The new logo for National Volunteer Week 2020 as well as resources including posters, invitations, certificates and social media images are now available.
Say thank you to your volunteers with high quality, volunteer-specific gifts, while supporting Volunteering Australia in advocating for the volunteering sector in Australia.
As well as the hugely popular lapel pins we have pens, lanyards, post-it notes, eco keep cups, keyrings and much more! We have also added ‘V’ volunteer anniversary pins for volunteers who have volunteered for 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 years.
Handbrake Turn - Rotary Driver Youth Awarness
Our ongoing interest in this project is particularly relevant in this month May which is the month when Rotary focusses on Youth Service                         This includes a project called  Rotary Youth Driver Awareness – RYDA  
RYDA is a community road safety initiative delivering practical road safety information targeting attitude and awareness of young drivers and passengers. The program is facilitated in partnership with Rotary, presented by professionals and supported by corporate sponsors. The Program about road safety is directed towards our young people as as they approach the period in their life when they start driving a car and ride as a passenger in a car driven by one of their peers. In Tasmania it is presented to students in grade 10.
The program focuses on attitude and awareness with the aim of making the students better people on the road. Presenters include Road Safety experts, driving instructors, Police , recovering survivors of road crashes and drug and alcohol educators.
