Whiria Te Tangata – Weaving the people together

Te Wiki Tūao ā-Motu – National Volunteer Week honours the collective energies and mana of volunteers in Aotearoa. They grow our people, open minds, open hearts and create joy.

Tūao Aotearoa Volunteering New Zealand leads this national event, which runs from 16–22 June. This year’s theme is Whiria te tangata – Weave the people together.

We’ve put together a range of resources and ideas you can use! Join us this National Volunteer Week to celebrate how our communities are stronger when working together.

We’ll also be sharing your stories about your volunteers so your team can see how valued they are. Use the hashtag #NVW2024
