Deliver meaningful community projects
Our community work supervisors (Kaitirotiro Mahi Hapori) led over one and a half million hours of community work last year delivering meaningful projects to schools, community groups, Marae, and churches across the country.
Guide and motivate others
Community Work provides the opportunity for offenders to give back to the community and gain new work skills. You’ll play a key role in this, through being a positive role model and coaching the skills required for the project.
Make a difference in your community
Community work supervisors support people on Community Work sentences to contribute to meaningful projects for not-for-profit organisations including schools, Department of Conservation, Councils, maraes, and churches.
Manage and supervise
Supervising work parties of around 8 people, our Community Work Supervisors gain valuable skills in managing people. They have a people-orientated approach with the ability to motivate and encourage, while enforcing the rules.
