National Volunteer Week (NVW) is Australia’s largest annual celebration of volunteering and will be held on 16 – 22 May 2022.

The theme for National Volunteer Week 2022 is Better Together. That is certainly true for home educators and the HEA!

Together we can do things that we can't do alone:

  • Have a voice at government level

  • Insurance for events & work experience

  • Discounted educational subscriptions

  • Access to school-only resources like Minecraft Education and Sketch-Up

"Volunteering brings people together; it builds communities and creates a better society for everyone. National Volunteer Week is a chance for all of us to celebrate and recognise the vital work of volunteers and to say thank you." ~Volunteering Australia

The HEA is 100% volunteer run! Our volunteers do everything - from answering phones to talking to the media, from writing emails to writing articles, from designing websites to social media management, from accounting to charity work, registration support to advocacy, from podcasts to conferences - whatever our community needs, the HEA is here to help.

Fully powered by volunteers.

We couldn't do it without our amazing team - so we want you to join with us in thanking them this week.
