2016 National 2016 National Volunteer Week EXPOVolunteer Week EXPO

The Volunteering EXPO is back! Centacare Volunteer Service held its last Volunteering EXPO in 2013 to celebrate National Volunteer Week. The EXPO was a resounding success with 20+ exhibitors on show, lots of networking happening and some new potential volunteers engaged.

The 2016 National Volunteer Week EXPO is being held on Thursday 12 May at the Queen Elizabeth Centre Upper Hall from 2:00pm – 6:00pm. This is a fantastic opportunity for volunteer involving organisations to showcase their volunteering programs to the public.
