Volunteer opportunity in Buller

Inspiring the Future is a programme where volunteers go into schools and talk about their jobs and their pathways.

The aim is to broaden young people's horizons about the world of work and how many different jobs there are out there that they could do. The programme is based on some research that shows that young people don't know about many jobs, and that stereotypes also hold them back from thinking they can do certain jobs (because of their gender etc).

Buller High School is looking to hold a couple of events in November and we need some more volunteers to sign-up for these events to happen. Anyone, in any job can sign up - please don't assume your job is 'boring'!

The people that have done it so far have loved it, and we provide resources to help you prepare - including tips from other volunteers. And it is only a few hours of your time.

Let us know if you can help out and to find out more about the programme go to inspiringthefuture.org.nz

Here's a cool idea for communicating with your neighbours without technology or breaching alert level rules...

The Team from Neighbourhood Support New Zealand

Each household gets 3 pieces of coloured paper that can be displayed in a window or on a door that others can easily see.

- Green is for I'm OK

- Yellow is for needing help or a check-in
