The Volunteer Resource Centre Supports and Promotes Volunteering in all its forms...

Media Opportunities


Get out there in 2013

We are looking for interesting stories for our two media activities!
1) Volunteering’s Voice on Access Manawatu - Fridays at 11am! Click here for examples of past shows!
We interview a different group each week about their organisation and how they engage volunteers! We like to talk with a "staff" member and a volunteer where possible, but the show is yours to present what you wish to about your organisation! You can include music of your choice, advertise upcoming events, speak about your sponsors and supporters and pre-record or do the show live! So many options there is really just NO excuse not to do it! It cost you nothing but a little time and you can use the recorded show for publicity after the show airs!

2) Fortnightly articles in The Guardian. Late last year we initiated this joint venture with Palmerston North Community Services Council, us and The Guardian! we have had very positive feedback around the articles and the volunteer positions which are advertised alongside these articles.  If you are interested in have an article published, we have writers available to come and speak with you to produce the article! Again you can speak about your upcoming events, engagement of volunteers, acknowledge your sponsors etc. It is your article so you tell us what you want to talk about! We are taking bookings now for the next few months slots! We need to meet with you approximately 2-3 weeks prior to your article being published to ensure the article is what you want!

If you are keen to get involved with these initiatives we look forward to hearing from you! Let us know if you have an event coming up (no matter when it is) that you would perhaps like to include with your article, and we can try and book your publishing date to coincide appropriately with the event!
Oh, and of course you can do BOTH the article and the radio show!!!
We look forward to hearing from you!
