National Volunteer Week

  • Announcements

According to the most recent Non-profit institutions satellite account: 2013 (StatsNZ) - an estimated 1,229,054 people volunteered for one or more NPIs in 2013. The average volunteer did 3.0 hours a week of formal unpaid work. The total time volunteers spent working for non-profits was estimated to total 157 million hours. Yet similar to global trends, NZ is witnessing reductions in time spent volunteering despite 90 percent of non-profits relying on volunteers. Without volunteers a vast array of wonderful projects and initiatives just wouldn’t happen. If you would like to learn more about volunteering visit the Volunteering New Zealand website here.
