Attend an event

We regularly present Ngā reo o VSA, a quarterly event where speakers discuss the impact of volunteering and international development, including return volunteers.

Our events offer a chance to reunite with former volunteers and get to know more about our work and the goals of our partners across the Pacific.

In addition, we support Interest Groups in Auckland, Manuwatu, Nelson and Canterbury, who host events, fundraisers, and gatherings. 

If you'd like to be notified when we are holding our next one, please sign up here.

Host a VSA speaker

Would your organisation like to host a VSA staff member or volunteer for your next event? We will do our best to provide a local speaker for your organisation.

There is no charge, however a donation to VSA's programmes would be welcome and appreciated.
