Get Involved

Volunteer

You can make a positive difference in our communities. Let us know about your skills, interests and availability.

Volunteers help with all areas of our work, supporting children, young people, whānau and communities facing tough times. At Skylight, we can’t do what we do without the support of volunteers.

Due to a retirement from the Board later this year, we are seeking a new member that can bring energy, commitment, sound judgment and critical thinking skills. For more information about this opening please read our advertisement here.

And if you, or a group you’re part of, want to volunteer as a regular thing, a one-off, or somewhere in between we’d love to hear from you.

Whether it’s Round the Bays, the Taupō Cycle Challenge, Iron Māori, or a local fun run or dog walk event – you could fundraise for Skylight alongside your training for and doing the event.

Let us know what event you’re going to do and ask about how we could support you.
