As we continue our migration to our new Volunteer Management System powered by Be Collective, Volunteering Bay of Plenty (Volbop) is delighted to be able to extend more exciting features to our highly valued Volunteers and Partner Organisations. We can now offer access to search fields via local area groups that are specific to the 6 districts we cover, that being Tauranga, Western BOP, Rotorua, Whakatane, Kawerau and Opotiki.

We have started the rollout process with Rotorua by inviting all Partner Organisations and Volunteers in the Rotorua region to accept our invitation to the Volbop Rotorua group. By accepting this, you will have access to the group to post and search for Volunteer roles specific to their region, while still enjoying access to our main Volbop group opportunities. All those in the Rotorua region were sent an email and invite, so should you have not received these, or you would simply like a bit of help, please do not hesitate to get in contact by emailing
