Everyone Volunteer, Act Now!


The 5th of December is the International Volunteer Day (IVD) proclaimed by the United Nations to promote volunteerism, and to encourage governments and organizations to pay tribute to volunteers in recognition of their contributions to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. Since 1992, AVS has been celebrating the IVD annually to show appreciation to volunteers, and to encourage more aspiring ones to adopt the volunteering way of life.
This year, the popular male group MIRROR from Hong Kong actively supports the promotion of volunteerism. Starting from 1 December 2023, promotional videos and posters with the theme "Everyone Volunteer" will be launched and featured on AVS social media platforms, bus bodies, and bus shelters in busy areas of Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. The objective is encouraging citizens, particularly young people, to volunteer and contribute to society.


You are welcome to participate in the following activities to spread the spirit of volunteerism. Please visit our social media platforms to get the latest information.
