get ready … october is month of service
Alcoans around Australia are gearing up for our annual ‘Worldwide Month of Service’ next month. Watch a short video about Alcoa volunteers here.     

Every year, Alcoa employees in Australia volunteer around 90,000 personal hours of their time to assist community and not-for-profit organisations – and in doing so they are helping build stronger communities for us all.  Did you know 90,000 hours is the equivalent of over 10 years!
 
Our people have demonstrated, time and time again, their commitment to our communities – and Month of Service, in October each year, is a time to celebrate their efforts and encourage increase volunteerism among our people. During Month of Service, volunteering events are held in over 200 Alcoa communities, in 33 countries making a real and lasting impact. Last year, Month of Service drew participation from 37% of the Australian workforce and this year we are aiming even higher. 
 
The Alcoa Foundation supports the volunteering efforts of our people by offering financial assistance to hundreds of community organisaitons via ACTION and Bravo! grants.
 
ACTION (Alcoans Coming Together In Our Neighborhoods) recognises the team efforts of at least five Alcoa employees who spend a minimum of four hours on a community service project for a local not-for-profit, community or non-governmental organisation. In recognition of the team's effort, the Alcoa Foundation makes a contribution to the organisation; grants are up to $US3,000.
 
Bravo! recognises individual Alcoa employees who volunteer 50 hours of personal time, in one year, to a not-for-profit, community or non-governmental organisation. Every Alcoa employee in Australia is entitled to one Bravo! grant each year.
 
As we lead into Month of Service, we celebrate our amazing volunteers - read more here.
