2023 Youth Certificate for Volunteering

NOMINATION FORM - Nominations close on 3rd May  2023
Each year Gisborne Volunteer Centre recognises the youth who have been contributing to our community through volunteering their time and skills to help others.

A certificate of recognition and thanks is presented to all who are nominated during our Youth Recognition Evening held during Youth Week on 25th May, 6.30 at Waikanae Surf Lifesaving Club Rooms. 

Our aim is to highlight the many young volunteers who are helping community groups and individuals provide services and achieve their potential. They could be volunteering for sports and school groups, marae or community groups, providing  entertainment, mentoring, tutoring, coaching, animal and environmental care,  community events and activities to name a few examples of the myriad of tasks that volunteers do.
