Joint Association Committees

Hong Kong Council of Volunteering ("HKCOV") is a joint committee established in 2004 by AVS in conjunction with organizations from various sectors, with a view to build a cross-sectoral platform for exchange and collaboration to cultivate broader participation in volunteering.  It serves to advise on the promotion and development of volunteerism in Hong Kong; to consider measures conducive to a favourable environment of volunteering; and to review the international development of volunteering and Hong Kong’s participation in such development.  Currently, the HKCOV has 18 member organizations.

The Council kicked off the Professional Volunteer Service Accreditation Programme ("PVSA") in 2005 together with its member organizations and AVS to commend professionals and senior executives for contributing their professional knowledge and skills in serving the community.  Supported by the Council, AVS launched the Leadership Bauhinia Volunteer Award in 2011.  It aims to recognized professionals and senior executives who have made outstanding contribution and achievements in volunteering.  Candidates must be nominated by HKCOV members organizations.
