Dear Volunteers: We're nothing without you.
Springboard Trust's vision is to improve the lives of young New Zealanders. But we can't make that happen without the thousands of hours our volunteers give freely every year.
Our volunteers come from all walks of life, but all have one thing in common: a desire to give back to our schools.
Through Springboard Trust, they partner with school leaders and - often over the course of 10 months - spend time listening to, challenging and developing those in New Zealand's most important role: education.
They do this as coaches, subject matter experts, facilitators and capacity partners. And this week, we're featuring interviews with some of our astonishingly accomplished volunteers to highlight their contribution.
We've also got a free infographic below that shows the breadth of work our volunteers do, as well as some special messages of thanks from principals whose lives have been irrevocably changed for the better.
Join us in applauding all of our volunteers, and enjoy what we've got on offer this week!
