International Volunteer Day is a global event to promote and spread the culture of volunteerism in the world and support the efforts of volunteers and strengthen their effective efforts in the community to achieve sustainable development goals. We seek to raise awareness amongst our youth about the importance of volunteering and to demonstrate its enormous benefits to the individual and society.

Our programs are detailed as follows:

Forum

Giving and Enrichment Forum enhances the concept of volunteerism through many experiences of the most giving individuals in addition to the obstacles and difficulties that they have gone through during their amazing journey. The forum aims to inspire and motivate individuals to participate vigorously in volunteerism and to understand the different categories and the motives behind it.

The Forum will be mastered by Mohammed Abdulaziz Al-Mousa at the Ithra Theater.
