With the generous sponsorship from the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, the Agency for Volunteer Service (“AVS”) launched in 2021 the new volunteer management system named “Volunteer Hongkong” (“V-HK”), a one-stop solution that digitalizes, automates and streamlines the processes of becoming and finding volunteers.
Volunteers, whether individual or corporate, can access at their fingertips a variety of services and learning opportunities once they have registered to become our members. Those who wish to use their specialized skills and knowledge for good causes could also become part of the Volunteer Talent Bank, joining forces with any of our 13 teams of professional volunteers in the mission of building a caring society.
Non-profit or charitable organizations are welcome to join our network and start receiving support from our dedicated team in the search of the right volunteers to match their service needs. For larger-scale projects and events, Volunteer Leaders who are well experienced and trained with volunteer engagement skills will be assigned to the frontline to help organizations coordinate the teams of volunteers we refer.
What’s more, members could also log onto the V-HK self-service portal to manage their service records, training credentials, achievements and awards. Through this new platform, we hope to see more citizens embodying the virtue of selflessness through volunteering works, and together, bringing in new impetus to the sustainable development of volunteerism.
