National Volunteer Recognition Week
April 16, 2023 - April 22, 2023
Volunteers give their time in support of various causes and ask for nothing in return, in fact volunteers work tirelessly to help their community, city, and country.
Many older adults are in a position where they can give their time, skills, and energy to volunteering. Organizations must rethink and remove barriers that may result in enthusiastic volunteers with disabilities choosing not to volunteer.
Organizations can recognize volunteers by acknowledging their contributions with thank you events, dinners, teas, or BBQs.
Organizations should consider developing and implementing family volunteering opportunities as there is an increase in multi-generations living together and providing support for each other.
