Volunteering

at Wainui Park


Want to make a difference and have the experience of a lifetime?

 
At Wainui Park we foster a volunteer culture that aims to enhance and build:

  • Leadership development
  • International YMCA relationships
  • Development of the skills and abilities of young people
  • Co-operation, fun, learning
  • Environmental and Outdoor Education

 
Consequently we employ on a seasonal basis a crew of volunteer outdoor instructors – commonly known at Wainui Park as ‘Programme Staff.’ These staff are over 21 years of age and ideally commit to our nine month season which runs from late August to late May.

Programme staff come from NZ, Australia, England, Canada, USA, Europe and a variety of other countries – bringing with them their own experiences, culture, values and skills. All of this makes Wainui Park a dynamic and ever-growing place to live and work.

Volunteer programme staff who are committed for the season live on site in shared accommodation, and receive a small weekly expense allowance as well as training, meals, internet access, vehicle access and a ready-made group of like minded friends!
