Volunteering and community engagement empower people to change the world from the grassroots up, especially when enabled by strong partnerships at every level.
It has been 10 years since the International Year of Volunteers in 2001, and through a General Assembly Resolution
, the United Nations called for this anniversary to be marked in 2011 across the planet.
During the anniversary Year, the wide range of partners and stakeholders recognized the positive impacts of volunteering, facilitated people’s contributions to peace and the Millennium Development Goals through volunteering, built and reinforced volunteering networks, and promoted the values and impact of volunteering.
