Volunteer Nelson and Be Collective – Engaging and Connecting the goodwill in our Community
Volunteer Nelson is celebrating International Volunteer Day 2020 on December 5 this year by launching their brand new volunteering platform for the Nelson Tasman Community. Volunteer Nelson is the first Volunteer Centre in the South Island to work with Be Collective and to provide this whole-of-community tool to enhance volunteering and giving within the region, a decision that Volunteer Nelson manager Gordon Oldfield describes as “bringing the future to volunteering in Nelson Tasman.”
Working in partnership with Be Collective, volunteers and across the region now have access to a fantastic interactive platform that puts community at the heart of the solution.
Be Collective has benefits for everyone and will help engage and connect the whole Nelson Tasman region. It’s free for anyone to sign up, apply for roles, or even start their own group on the platform. Volunteers have one location where they can apply for roles, track all of their volunteering, and export their own ‘Social CV’ that verifies all the skills and hours they have gained through their volunteer work. Organisations have one place where they can manage their volunteers and volunteering opportunities, share information and partner with others, and get data and reports on their social impact and the contribution of their volunteers.
Ellie Young from Volunteer Nelson says “We had been looking into various platforms but nothing came close to Be Collective’s functionality and value and potential for great community outcomes.
Alex Drummond from Be Collective New Zealand says “It’s been fantastic working with the team at Volunteer Nelson to support their mahi in connecting people with their community. We’re thrilled that Be Collective is able to add value to the Nelson Tasman community. International Volunteer Day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the fantastic work volunteers do in our communities and provide something exciting for the whole community to get involved with.”
