VNZ Releases InvolveMe

VNZ Releases InvolveMe to Increase the Effectiveness of Volunteering

Volunteering New Zealand is pleased to release ‘InvolveMe’ a free online tool designed to help strengthen the effort of our nation’s 1.2 million volunteers.

“New Zealand’s volunteer workforce generates the equivalent of $3.5 billion to the economy, across more than 100,000 non-profit organisations, so it is vital that we ensure people with responsibility for volunteering across all levels of an organisation remain agile and strategic in the face of changing forms and expectations of volunteers” says Scott Miller, Chief Executive of Volunteering New Zealand.

The InvolveMe tool comprises a survey and customised report for organisational staff and volunteers to assess their organisation’s existing strengths and opportunities by providing an almost 360 degree picture of the organisation’s effectiveness across four domains: (1) strategy, (2) organisation culture, (3) communication, and (4) tools, processes, and resources supporting volunteering.

Miller explains that the tool will help people to “look at their strengths and weaknesses, and to start a conversation about what work can be done to support and improve the volunteer experience. By identifying any gaps and generating ideas for addressing these, we think it will be ideal to use when reviewing or refreshing your organisation's volunteer involvement.”

The development of the tool has been gratefully funded through the 2016 Department of Internal Affairs’ Community Leadership Fund.
Improve the effectiveness of your volunteering experience by trying the InvolveMe tool for yourself at www.involveme.nz

Volunteering New Zealand (VNZ) is an association of national volunteer-involving organisations that have a commitment to volunteering. Their mission is to maximise the impact of volunteering in our communities. www.volunteeringnz.org.nz
