Volunteering New Zealand is running a free online Volunteer Managers’ Leadership Mentoring Programme, in partnership with the Mentoring Foundation of New Zealand.

This mentoring programme is for Volunteer Managers or Co-ordinators who are key enablers of volunteering. We know that to support volunteer managers is to grow volunteering.

The next programme will run from May until November 2024.


>>If you missed the opportunity to have a mentor, do consider joining our free Peer Support Programme! Details here. <<

What are the benefits for participants?

  • Increased effectiveness for mentees in their roles, achieved through development of their leadership skills, knowledge and confidence.
  • A sense of achievement for mentors.
  • A great career development opportunity for both mentees and mentors.
  • One-on-one support for mentees to help identify personal development priorities.
  • Opportunities to improve networks and connections with leaders in the community sector.
  • Access to a proven mentoring model which helps get the most out of mentoring relationships.

What participants have said…

“…it was fantastic to talk about things in a really broad way and then narrow down onto some achievable tasks. Thanks to both of you for the support!” – mentee

“I am so enjoying this and as I know I am getting as much from it as I hope the mentee is, it has led me to think of maybe looking to do it more in future. It’s a fantastic initiative and so well organised. THANKYOU!” – mentor


Do you have volunteer management leadership experience and would like to help others in their leadership development? Do you see yourself as a good listener and teacher? Can you commit to one mentor session a month for six months? Then we’d love to hear from you!
