This week on Zig Zag we interviewed Scott Miller, CEO of Volunteering New Zealand, who told us about Student Volunteer Week 2016.
Running for the second year, Student Volunteer Week (SVW) is a national campaign organised by Volunteering New Zealand, which promotes and encourages student volunteering. Throughout SVW, students, educational institutions and community organisations are able to think up creative ways of celebrating and rewarding student volunteers and inspiring other students to begin volunteering. They – and you – can do this by organising events on campus, providing volunteers with recognition and awards, and by sharing positive volunteering experiences with others.
During Student Volunteer Week, an interview with a student volunteer will be broadcasted everyday on Wellington Access Radio. Make sure to tune in at 4.50pm to hear about inspiring experiences by awesome student volunteers!
