Volunteer Wellington Meetup
More than 550 people have come along to our monthly volunteer meetup events over the past three years. In the relaxed ambiance of the Southern Cross Garden Bar speakers from 95 of our community organisation members have talked enthusiastically about the volunteer opportunities they have to offer. Matches have been made on the spot as well as new roles created to engage the skills and interests of attendees. It all began with a conversation two volunteers Chalaka and Claude had back in November 2016. They were looking at ways to promote volunteering and suggested Volunteer Wellington set up a volunteer meetup…..and as they say the rest is history!
Brendan "What impresses me is how the volunteers self-manage. They’ve got a plan, objectives, and great skills."
Our Employee Volunteering programme is amping up with 250 Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment, all from one department, completing an amazing 22 projects over the last 3 weeks. Take a look at their efforts on these videos...
