Are you a Newlands resident with an intense desire to serve your community, particularly in times of need and a willingness to share your knowledge and experiences with others? We are currently recruiting for Huia Leaders. These volunteers enable the building of connections and trust amongst Newlands residents. They love gathering people, connecting with them, encouraging those that can help into the community and connecting with those that need help. Some Huia Leaders will actively foster connections between members of the households in their neighbourhood to encourage care, respect, communication, sharing, security and friendship between neighbours. The Huia Leader does not necessarily run the neighborhood group but will work closely with others to share the load. They will ensure their neighbourhood group is disaster ready. Huia Leaders have a heart for people and gathering and connecting people but also have good boundaries, so they do not get taken advantage of. They respect the views of others, regardless of race, age, gender or orientation.
