Happy National Volunteer Week!
We are super aware of the theme for this year: Te Hua o te Mahi Tahi - The benefit of working together. We wouldn't be able to do any of what we do without the awesome generosity of our volunteers!
As volunteers ourselves, we know how working together lightens the spirit and keeps us inspired to learn, grow and create.
Every week we have opportunities for anyone who is interested in the work we do, and this week we welcome back the regular Thursday morning time slot for working on community projects, such as Bags For Good or 4KT Elephants.
We also regularly have groups of volunteers from University of Otago and Otago Polytechnic as well as corporate 'team building' excersizes.
As volunteers, you can 'bank' your time with us or with Dunedin Timebank to exchange for services in kind, including use of our studio for your own projects, any of our great sewing classes and even items from our Swap Shop. It's all part of our idea of 'equal value exchange'. <3
Other benefits are knowing your skills and time are valued, and connecting with other caring, creative people.
If you would like to learn more about projects you could help with, or time banking in general, we would love to hear from you.
