Volunteer in the community
Gain experience by volunteering with a charity or not-for-profit organisation that interests you.
A great way to gain experience is to get involved in volunteer activities that complement your studies, interests and career goals. Through giving back to your local community, you can develop relevant practical skills as well as explore different areas and try something new.
There are hundreds of organisations in the Wellington region to choose from. Volunteer roles range from a few hours or a day, to something you do regularly each week.
Here are some of the areas you could volunteer in:
- Arts and culture
- Disability support
- Health and wellbeing
- Law and advice
- Social services
- Youth and education
Current students can see the full list of Wellington Plus Approved Activities on CareerHub.
