Volunteer Spirit Network, we are very excited and honored to invite you to the 16th IAVE Asia Pacific Regional Volunteer Conference and Youth Volunteer Conference in Bangkok, Thailand on November 11-15, 2019.  The conference will be divided to two events. The Youth Volunteer Conference is a 2-day event which will be held at Thammasat University, Rangsit Camous on 11-12 November and the Regional Volunteer Conference will be held at Swissotel Bangkok Ratchada on 13-15 November. This 5-day event is hosted by the International Association for Volunteer Effort (IAVE) in collaboration with Volunteer Spirit Network which is a national platform of volunteering promotion in Thailand. The conference aims to bring together civil society, government sectors, corporates, NGOs and academia to uncover values that need to be in place for volunteering to be valuable, sustainable and beneficial to the volunteers, organizations and wider community.

The IAVE Asia Pacific Youth Volunteer Conference provides great opportunity for young volunteers aged between 18-25 years old to connect, share and learn from each other. This event aims to encourage participants to exchange their experiences on volunteerism happening in their countries as well as to foster companionship and collaborative network that can last for many years. The youth conference will not only motivate participants to think and gain hands-on experiences through group activities, but also get to know the host country and its rich culture.
