Volunteer Meetups a hit

More than 300 people have come along to our monthly volunteer meetup group this year. In the relaxed ambience of the Southern Cross Garden bar speakers from 35 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 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!

Our first meetup group for 2018 is on Tuesday 13 February…and we have four member organisations already signed up to speak! If you would like your organisation to present at one of the 2018 Volunteering meetup sessions contact Aileen Davidson aileen@volunteerwellington.nz
