Kahu Youth offers all youth of the Upper Clutha region opportunities for positive events, activities, programmes and support. The youth workers provide organised, directed activities/events on a regular basis for youth aged 11-24 while incorporating a wide range of members of the local community. They also provide positive channels through which young people may achieve success and gain recognition. They advocate and encourage a voice for local youth.
We are looking for a volunteer gardener to help keep their grounds tidy. This would involve very simple lawn mowing, weed eating and hedge trimming etc.
Volunteers will gain satisfaction from seeing their efforts blossom - literally! We hope volunteers will enjoy imparting their knowledge of gardening to the young people and enjoy their company if volunteering side by side.
A willingness to help out and some knowledge of gardening would be useful. If volunteering at times when the youth are there volunteers should be happy communicating with young people.
The time required would average out to a couple of hours a fortnight but can be done as and when needed. It can be carried out in peace and quiet during the day or at times when the youth are there.
The first step is to express your interest by filling out the form below. We will then put you in touch directly with the organisation for more information on the role and how to proceed.
