Central Otago Mirror - - VOLUNTEER WEEK - Na­tional Vol­un­teer Week runs from June 18 to 24 with the theme of Live, Laugh, Share: Vol­un­teer. Visit na­tion­alvol­un­teer­week.nz for more in­for­ma­tion, op­por­tu­ni­ties and pro­mo­tional ma­te­rial.

Over the past num­ber of years, we have seen the rise of Microvolunteering, which de­scribes a vol­un­teer, or team of vol­un­teers, com­plet­ing small tasks that make up a larger project for or­gan­i­sa­tions or gov­ern­ment agen­cies. Th­ese projects of­ten re­quire more spe­cialised skills and have much smaller time com­mit­ments.

Check out your lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions direc­tory on Neigh­bourly.co.nz and ask them how you can show your sup­port.

While th­ese ideas are de­signed to in­spire you, don’t let them re­strict you. Get cre­ative, there are so many ways to get in­volved.
