Volunteering New Zealand
We are kaitiaki of Mahi Aroha, empowering volunteers to enrich Aotearoa New Zealand.
Our aspiration for Aotearoa New Zealand is that volunteering is valued as part of who we are as a nation.
What’s new from VNZ
Do you volunteer?
VNZ needs your feedback! VNZ is seeking feedback from people who engage in volunteering, social action and Mahi Aroha, or who in some way give their time in the communities. We hope to gain a better understanding of the current state of volunteering in New Zealand. Our State of Volunteering report on our findings will be published in 2020.
Student Volunteer Week
30 March – 5 April 2020. Student Volunteer Week (SVW) celebrates young people who are striving to make a change through volunteering, and encourages students to try volunteering. SVW includes a wide variety of events, activities, and awareness-raising campaigns led by universities, tertiaries and schools nationwide. SVW resources available soon!
