VOLUNTEER

gift of giving

Share your time

Pou Whakaaro's  volunteer support programme is about making a positive change in someone’s life and gaining a new friend in the process. It is about offering practical support with a person with mental health issues or a disability. It is not time specific. There is choice. There is flexibility. The emphasis is on support and having fun – together.

Share your skills

Pou Whakaaro's  volunteer skills programme is focused on skill-based volunteering. These sessions are in our Arts and Crafts programmes and in recycled projects. Shorter, focused projects based on goals the person wants to achieve. You work in a group setting with people we partner to develop a specific skill, or achieve a specific goal. 

Who can volunteer

Pou Whakaaro  is on the look-out for people from all walks of life. We welcome applicants age 14 and over, who have a clean police record, enthusiasm and desire to support others.

For those who choose to apply for our full volunteer programme, we offer a full induction and orientation programme for new volunteers. We also provide ongoing training with specific emphasis on understanding the people we partner, as well as communication and first aid.
