YMCA Holiday Programme Volunteering

See message below from Haven at YMCA re volunteering during the school holidays:
The YMCA is always looking for volunteer leaders for our School Holiday Programmes and at the moment I am looking for those interested in being part of our April School Holiday Programmes. With Easter in the middle this is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to test the waters on volunteering and still have a break!
The dates for the programmes are as follows:
Week One
Monday 15th
Tuesday 16th
Wednesday 17th
Thursday 18th
Week Two 
Tuesday 23rd
Wednesday 24th
Friday 26th*There will also be a full day training (Saturday or Sunday) early April that all Volunteers must attend*

We are running x7 Christchurch based programmes both weeks as well as our regular week long camp in Wainui in week two. Volunteers need to be 15 years or older and will be provided with full training, further development & leadership opportunities, a reference for their CV, and full support from our Youth Development Services staff.

Their experience with us provides them with the opportunity to plan and facilitate activities, hold roles of responsibility within the team, step outside of their comfort zone, grow in their strengths, and give back to their community through caring and connecting with children and their peers.

This is a fantastic opportunity for students for a large variety of reasons including: Those who
are required to do a school service or who are apart of the Young NZ Challenge (Duke of
Edinburgh Award). It can also be very beneficial for senior students who may be either
looking for part-time work with little to no experience, or students who are looking at

university studies in related fields.

If you know of any students interested in Volunteering with us, please send them to our website https://www.ymcachch.org.nz/ (volunteering & employment tab) and complete the Expression of Interest Form, or they can contact me directly via email/phone (see below).
