Thanks to everyone who has been involved with National Volunteer Week so far! We are disappointed to have to tell you we are cancelling two events due to weather conditions... see below.
Please contact us if you have any questions, and feel free to pass this on so the news gets around too!
We have also been asked for the names of 1 or 2 volunteers who would like to speak about their experiences as a volunteer in the local community - if this is of interest to you please email back to firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP!
National Volunteer Week, a week of acknowledging and thanking volunteers all around the country, runs from 16 – 22 June. During this week we at Volunteer New Zealand will be celebrating the women and men of volunteering who gift their time to our communities.
Volunteers are diverse in the skills, networks, qualities and passion they bring to their role. This year we celebrate diversity in Te Reo Maori with the theme “He tāngata! He tāngata! He tāngata!” which translates as “it is people, it is people, it is people”.
Volunteers are the unsung heroes of Aotearoa New Zealand. We want to bring to light the tremendous work they do for our communities.
