At the core of HCNZ’s operations is a team of hard-working, dedicated volunteers. We are proud to be a volunteer-driven organisation and greatly appreciate the commitment. HCNZ volunteers include people of all ages, from students to retirees, who enjoy working and socialising together as well as conveying meaningful experiences to visitors, both local and international.
