Thank you for signing up to our newest newsletter!

Every month we will keep you up date with new roles and organisations seeking volunteers across the region. For each role we'll give you a snippet of info to tease your tastebuds. For full details, click the image and you'll be taken through to the full role description where you can 'fill in an application'. This doesn't commit you to volunteering, think of it like an expression of interest and a way of connecting with organisations you want to find out about.

If you can't find what you are looking for here, don't forget to check out our regional online database and The Wanaka App where we add new roles for the Upper Clutha as they crop up in their community/jobs section. We also love meeting face to face for a chat about volunteering opportunities!
