International Volunteer Day

Volunteers rock big time! Join us in celebrating the immeasurably valuable contributions of volunteers in our world.  From those involved in international organizations to those who work informally at the local level, volunteers make a massive, positive impact on society.

Back in 1985 the United Nations established International Volunteer Day and since then people all over the world have been celebrating on December 5 of each year.

Young. Global. Active.

On IVD 2013, we not only celebrate and recognize volunteerism in all its facets, but also pay special tribute to the contribution of youth volunteers in global peace and sustainable human development. For IVD 2013 we celebrate globally that young people act as agents of change in their communities.To post/read about volunteer actions all over the world and to download useful tools and information, please visit: http://www.volunteeractioncounts.org/en/ivd-2013/

At Lord Tweedsmuir we are especially thankful for the many volunteers who work on the Library Team.  Please make sure you express your thanks to these students who serve their classmates, teachers and other staff with such diligence.  As an added bonus, we are pleased to invite all of our Library Team volunteers to a Christmas Party / Appreciation Lunch on Wednesday, December 18.  Stay posted for more details!
