Kāpiti Volunteers celebrate a week to remember

Kāpiti has a great volunteer base and this week is about recognising that work (unpaid).

Each year New Zealand celebrates National Volunteer Week to recognise and celebrate the vital contribution of New Zealand’s approximately 1.2 million volunteers in areas as diverse as social development, the economy and the environment. We celebrate volunteers and the invaluable contribution they make to our communities.

‘Live, laugh, share volunteer’ is the theme this year, which helps capture the heart-felt appreciation we feel when people come together to build stronger, more vibrant communities through volunteer service.

About Volunteer Kāpiti

Volunteer Kāpiti is the only Volunteer Centre on the Kāpiti Coast that promotes and supports volunteering.

We are a specialist volunteer recruitment agency that connects volunteers (both individuals and groups) with a variety of opportunities throughout the Kāpiti Coast, that provide them with the ability to gain work experience, new skills, new ideas, connections and the chance to make a difference in their community.

We connect non-profit Organisations, Clubs and Schools on the Kāpiti Coast with volunteers to help them increase their diversity, capability and achieve their objectives.

We also provide training in topics relating to Volunteer Management to assist Community Organisations in recruiting and retaining quality volunteers as well as promote Best Practice Volunteer Management.
