New date: Council for Volunteer Service Abroad | NationDatesNZ

During the McGuinness Institute’s recent TalentNZ Tour, we were fortunate to meet many interesting people. Not only did we hear some great ideas about how New Zealand can build a talent-based economy, but also some great suggestions for Nation Dates – including the addition of a new date: the creation of the Council for Volunteer Service abroad in 1962.

1962: Council for Volunteer Service Abroad 
The Council’s purpose is to send volunteers abroad on two-year assignments to places in need of aid. The Council is established in 1962, after a meeting attended by representatives from 30 organisations.
