Te Hiku - volunteers needed to help man the Eco Centre shop

Hi all. We are looking for new volunteers to help man the Eco Centre in Kaitaia. Not that I am getting rid of the current ones, they can still kick butt, however they too need time off and would like to see new blood around the place. The job isn't onerous, in fact most people use the time to do their crafts, research or other activities as generally we are not overly busy. Some travel in from the wopwops to shop then come do a shift before going home again. We pay in time credits. If you know a younger person who needs work experience or a helping hand back into the workforce (CV might be a little bare?), this is a good opportunity to create a new start. Skills needed: be willing to listen, can do basic counting, be available to do a 2.5 hour shift either morning or afternoon, have some interest in environmental issues is helpful. May need to do a Police check. Little (1 shift a month) or lots, any help is gratefully appreciated. Thanks - The Team at the Eco Centre

Are you aged 18 or over? Do you live in North Canterbury? Do have one hour free in your weekly schedule? If you answered 'YES!' to all of the above and want make a positive impact on a young person's life, YOU are invited to apply for the role of volunteer mentor! As a mentor, you will be professionally matched with a vulnerable child in your direct community and for one hour, once a week you’ll spend time together sharing hobbies and interests. The rangatahi (young people) in our programme are aged between 6 and 11 and are not high needs, but are children who need a bit of extra support and attention due to circumstances beyond their control. Activities you and your mentee might take part in may include; walking the dog, going for a hot chocolate, shooting some basketball hoops, baking or getting crafty... it's all about doing things you both enjoy and just spending time together, one-on-one. Throughout your time matched (a minimum of one year), our Mentoring Coordinators will be there to support and guide you along the way, with resources and activities (i.e. board games, craft materials) available if needed. You will also be invited to regular 'Match Events' where you can connect with other volunteers and rangatahi in the programme. The process of becoming a mentor includes an informal information session at our Rangiora office, followed by an application form, police check, formal interview and training session. On average, it can take about 6 to 8 weeks to complete the training process. Make a difference in your community and apply to join the Big Brothers Big Sisters team today!

Environmental Weed Control Work

The Staveley Camp forest has a number of invasive weeds, many of which (notably contoneaster) are altering the fundamental structure of the forest. Where areas of the forest have been cleared of contoneaster it is obvious that this weed, when established, prevents the growth of any other species. Work to control the weeds is continuing in the Staveley Forest on a weekly basis and we would love your help! We use hand tools (loppers, secateurs, hand saws) and gel herbicide in a method known as 'cut and paste'. The work can be quite hard and heavy, but you can work at your own pace and there is no pressure to meet KPIs! The location is beautiful and you get to hang out with the birds and the bush. We can provide all the tools, gloves and protective eyewear, although if you have your own LEATHER work gloves (many of the weeds are spikey) bring these. Strong shoes and work clothes a must. Bring your own lunch or take a break at the Staveley Store just down the road :-) If you can make your own way to Staveley Camp and would like to spend some hours/days/years! helping clear weeds, please get in touch to arrange a time that suits us both. gen de spa 0211 345 802
