Corporate Volunteering and Partnerships

Leave the office for something different


Days away from the normal work environment can be a real tonic for the team, and a day at Kaipatiki Project certainly ticks all the boxes in terms of giving-back and community engagement. For Kaipatiki Project, it’s about joining forces and connecting people for a common purpose – lend us your staff for a day and together with our restoration staff we can make an enormous contribution to the lasting regeneration of our local reserves.

We can handle groups of 20-25 people, larger groups on request. Group volunteering opportunities can be arranged for Tuesday afternoons and Fridays.
