Volunteer day at Unitec

Today was Volunteer day at Unitec.

We had an olpc stand and there was lots of interest from the students, so gave out an information sheet that tells them where to download Sugar on a Stick, how to join the mailing list, and where we meet in Auckland on Saturdays.

Tracey came to help with the stand.

There is a huge variety of international students at Unitec and some were interested in translations for their country.

Some of the other volunteer organisations at the event included:

* Fire service
* Trade Aid
* Refugee services
* Citizen Advice Bureau
* Volunteering Auckland
* Auckland Zoo
* Special Olympics
* Habitat for Humanity

There were lots more but I didn’t get around to them all unfortunately. All in all, I think it was a well organised and well attended event. Volunteering can really help students get experience that can lead to employment, so well worth running the event for the students. Volunteer day at Unitec
