Volunteering New Zealand is running a 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 first programme is running from November 2023 to May 2024.  We will open applications for the next programme in March 2024. 

What are the benefits for participants?

  • Increased effectiveness for mentees in their roles, achieved through development of their leadership skills, knowledge and confidence.
  • 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.
