It’s that time of year again – Volunteers Training Hui is coming up!

Volunteers Training Hui (VTH) is a 3 day retreat away for UN Youth Volunteers from all around the country to come together, get to know each other, learn more about the organisation, upskill, eat yum food, have fun… the list could go on!

Our Volunteers are the power behind the amazing work that UN Youth achieves every year. VTH is all about giving our Volunteers the support, education and skills they need to do the best in their roles.

Alongside VTH will be presented the 2018 National Volunteer Awards! Check out all the details for those in the tabs above.

Following VTH, we will be holding our National Annual General Meeting. All the details for this can also be found in the tabs above.
