A volunteer’s story
August 24, 2015
Working as a volunteer for the White Ribbon campaign was an incredible learning curve and an enriching experience that I would highly recommend.
From the very beginning I felt I was helping to make a positive change, meeting a diverse range of people and learning more about the practical aspects of a non-for-profit organisation.
I worked both behind the scenes and on site at various White Ribbon events during White Ribbon months, giving me an appreciation of the campaigns audience and reach. As part of a team collectively working towards a positive, non-violent New Zealand, I learned an incredible amount, gained invaluable experience, and had the satisfaction of knowing I was making a difference.
I am currently participating in a University Exchange with the University of Edinburgh. My work experience with White Ribbon, and the reference that followed, enhanced my application and greatly helped with my acceptance in the program.
The volunteer internship is a fantastic opportunity to gain invaluable experience and also to help in the community, and something I would highly recommend to all. Rebecca Ashcroft – White Ribbon Volunteer 2013-2015
