The Microvolunteering Collective  Northland, Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Gisborne, Hawke's Bay, Taranaki, Manawatu/Wanganui, Wellington, Nelson/Tasman, Marlborough, West Coast, Canterbury, Otago Southland

Job Description

The Microvolunteering Collective is a community group dedicated to breaking down the barriers to traditional volunteering, and enabling anyone – regardless of their age, gender, background, or experience, to make a meaningful difference in their community, through bite-sized volunteer tasks, known as ‘microvolunteering’.

With the aim of using micro-moments to create macro-change, we organise events and activities that bring people together, and empower them to use their strengths, skills and creativity as a tool for good (and in doing so, enhance personal and collective wellbeing).

Such events and activities include hand-making postcards and filling them with messages of love for lonely residents in local rest homes, and repurposing old clothing into toys for dogs and cats in the SPCA, for example.

Since our establishment in February 2019, we have brought together almost 1, 000 microvolunteers, who have contributed 1, 400 hours of their time towards various community causes.

Now, we’re on a mission to turn microvolunteering into a nationwide movement.

And that’s where you come in!

We’re looking for students at high schools and universities throughout Aotearoa who would be interested in facilitating a variety of fun community events that champion microvolunteering on their campus.

Our group was originally established as a community club at the University of Waikato. Each fortnight, we held an interactive event on campus, that brought students together to connect and make a meaningful difference in the local community.

This was a fantastic experience that helped students experience the many benefits that come with community contribution, while nurturing their wellbeing.

As a Campus Facilitator, you’ll get to spearhead unique initiatives, and create meaningful change, within your local community, in whatever way suits you.

We’ll provide you with all the resources, guidance and mentorship you need – and it’ll be your job to get out and about in your school/university community – facilitating and delivering events. Ideally, you’ll:

– be passionate about volunteering, your local community, and change-making

– be a people-person with loads of personality, who is skilled at building relationships and creating welcoming environments

– have a love for events, with some experience in planning, delivering and facilitating events/activities for diverse groups of people

– be a creative thinker, willing to bring a fresh perspective to all that you do
