Each year, HandsOn Hong Kong celebrates International Volunteer Day—a UN General Assembly mandated day to recgonize the power and potential volunteers have to effect positive change in their communities. As Hong Kong's leading volunteer hub, HandsOn marks the occasion each year by convening a high-level, forward-looking discussion on the role of individuals and companies in meeting social needs. 

International Volunteer Day 2019 will focus on Community Engagement Strategies for Long-term Success. In today’s rapidly changing business climate, astute leaders understand that proactively implementing robust community engagement programs is good for business. But when it comes to community engagement, many don’t know how to take action. This year’s International Volunteer Day event scheduled for Friday, December 6, will hone in on concrete, practical steps that businesses can take to meet their community engagement goals. 

This event will provide an interactive platform for leaders to examine emerging trends in Hong Kong and exchange ideas on community engagement strategies with a view towards maximizing benefits for all stakeholders.

Thank you to the Renaissance Harbour View Hotel for generously hosting our International Volunteer Day breakfast each year.
