Our History

Linda Llewellyn

Linda Llewellyn, Founder

Hi! I’m Linda Llewellyn, the founder of Celebrate Volunteers. I was inspired to create Celebrate Volunteers after working with thousands of volunteers over twenty plus years. They bring their talents, experience, and unique qualities to volunteering along with an undeniable spirit of wanting to help others. I was blessed with the opportunity to know so many great volunteers. What I valued so much was each person and the unique way they accomplished a meaningful impact in the life of another. Celebrate Volunteers is a way to honor and share the story of volunteers, who accomplish anything and everything, while inspiring others. Thank you to all the outstanding volunteers for your service and to all those who work with volunteers for sharing their story and appreciating their efforts.

Blog Article #2 - “What’s Holding You Back From 21st Century Recognition Strategy?” 

Recognition is a critical component to your volunteers’ engagement, and the impact volunteers generate for your Volunteer-Supported Organization (VSO).  Innovative volunteer Recognition practices are key to achieving high-quality results.  Knowing that, why are you still doing the same old, tired thing for volunteer Recognition when it’s not producing the results your organization desires?

It has been a busy, educational and inspiring summer with the Points of Light Service Unites Conference in Seattle in June and the MAVA National Summit on Volunteer Engagement in St. Paul in July.  Both conferences brought together volunteer managers with great speakers.  The energy at both was positive and powerful as volunteer managers absorbed new information, inspired by success stories, and shared and collaborated with their unique tribe.
