The Volunteer Resource Centre Manawatu & Districts (VRCMD) is a charitable trust established in 2005 to develop a Volunteer Centre in the region. The trust was supported by the Manawatu Promotional Trust initially and undertook investigations including many interviews workshops and discussion groups in order to ascertain the need and potential structure of the VRCMD.
The Trust is run by a group of volunteers who are very pleased to be at the point of beginning service delivery to the local community.
The VRCMD is a member of Volunteering New Zealand, a national body representing volunteer centres and the national bodies of organisations, which involve volunteers. Volunteering New Zealand is strongly committed to volunteering.
There are over a dozen Volunteer Centres to be found all around New Zealand and the VRCMD has received tremendous support and encouragement from our sister centres including assistance with our documentation, website and services for which the VRCMD trust board are immensely grateful.
The VRCMD is funded by various sources who have an interest in the local community, and who the VRCMD wishes to recognise and thank.
Volunteering is about:
- GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
- MAKING A DIFFERENCE
- And most of all FUN!
- Get involved...
"What you do for yourself alone dies with you. What you do for others and the world, remains and is immortal." - Albert Pike
The current members of the trust board of the Volunteer Resource Centre, Manawatu & Districts have a number of years experience between them within the Not For Profit area, and in delivering services and projects within the community on a variety of levels. The board has many links within the community and will be looking for additional board membership as time goes, with an awareness of skills and experiences which might be needed within the organisation.
