We are pleased to announce our first event in Wellington at BizDojo, 115 Tory Street, Wellington.

The weekend starting on Friday 11th August from 6 pm to 8 pm with networking, charity introductions, and team formation. You will be volunteering your weekend (Saturday 12th August and Sunday 13th August from 9 am to 5 pm) where we all will be giving back to the community by providing IT solutions to charities.

What’s in it for me?

First and foremost we aim to help local non-profits. NPOs often have quite a lot of IT challenges. Through this, you may find that you meet new people from different companies or industries, find contacts if you’re looking for work, or get to step outside of your comfort zone and learn something new through a weekend project. Or just have a fun weekend working in a team to deliver something that is really useful to the community!

What can we expect as results for the NPOs?

This depends on you, your team and the needs of your chosen NPO! Over the many successful weekends we have run in Auckland, we have helped numerous NPOs with websites, IT infrastructure, design, branding, content as well as general advice.

Can’t attend, but want to be notified of other events?     Join us on meetup.
