On Saturday, 23rd July 2016, we conducted a joint gathering of our first ever Volunteer Appreciation Session and the 5th NVP Volunteer Orientations. The main purpose of all our Orientations has been to introduce our new volunteers to the basic Code of Conduct required and expected of them as well as to discuss their potential placement within our respective registered Beneficiary Institutions (BI’s). However, this time we also wanted them to get the chance to meet and greet our previously successfully placed volunteers.
The volunteers invited to the Appreciation Session were those who had successfully completed the first term – which is around 8 weeks – of their volunteering services. The basic layout of the session was as follows: we began with a short, engaging presentation which explained in detail the Volunteer Code of Conduct as well as their rights and obligations within the Beneficiary Institutions. This was followed by a small activity where we invite our new volunteers to share their respective views and ideas regarding volunteering, its necessities and the acquired benefits.
A one-on-one discussion comes after this, where we discuss and decide their individual placement within our registered BI’s. This was followed by a small tea break in which both the exisiting and new volunteers shared there experiences and expectations. It was an absolute joy to witness the passion and enthusiasm of our new volunteers and to listen to the motivating stories and experiences of our graduated volunteers! The certificate distribution ceremony came right after the tea break, which was followed by a photography session.
This was an amazing experience for our entire team and it us first-hand knowledge about the commitment of our volunteers. We sincerely thank you all for you continuous support and passion. A special shout out to our first batch of graduated volunteers, all of whom have agreed to continue their volunteer services for another 8 week term. NVP salutes you for your passion and commitment! We would not be possible without your continuous interest and support! Keep up the good work guys!
We will be posting the details of our upcoming programmes so stay tuned to our Portal, Facebook and LinkedIn page for further updates! In the meantime, keep spreading the word and keep volunteering!
