Celebrate Volunteers promotes the belief that people who generously donate their time and talents contribute an invaluable service deserving of recognition, thanks and appreciation.
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.
I am so grateful for the love, support, and collaboration received from family and friends. Special thanks, appreciation and hugs to:
I was also blessed with the talented work of outstanding professionals.:

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?View Post

Through a series of blog articles, Linda and Barry will tackle the what, why and how that has led the profession to this leadership shortfall, and what we can collectively do about it to get this Recognition train back on the tracks. Read the series to support your own professional development as a Leader of Volunteer Engagement (LoVE)!View Post
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.View Post
