We're like a Match Maker for social-good
We match people who want to try something new with those who can give that something new
There's an existing pool of talented people here in Porirua, and there are also people in our community who, for various reasons, are isolated from experiencing things outside their circle. We're here to provide a platform for folks in the Porirua region to volunteer to put their hand up to fulfil a persons wish for a particular experience, or offer to share an interest of theirs as an Experience.
A Wish can be anything. From someone wanting to korero over a common topic, fulfilling an interest they haven't had access to do, to wishing to try something that they were too afraid to do alone.
It's free to register to either become a Host (a person who can fulfil or offer an experience) or become a Participant (a person who is looking to try a new experience). You can be both a Host and a Participant.
There are three ways to Host...
An Experience Host has a skill, a passion, a work skill, service, or any interest that they would like to share with someone else. We'll help you develop your experience so it fits with what you can offer. Your Experience can be anything and can be as long or short as you want, offered once or many times, to one person or to a group, plus there are no long-term commitments -- anything is possible and we'll be there to guide you. Find out more hereA Wish Host looks through 'The Wishlist', and puts their hand up if they find something they can help out with. The Wishlist is a noticeboard displaying a Participant's wishes. Find out more hereA Co-Host assists an Experience Host (with their approval). If you'd like to help instead of lead an experience, then co-hosting could be a great option.
Becoming a Host is so much fun and the benefits to you and your recipient is really rewarding! Anyone can become a host (or a co-host), click here to find out more about becoming a host -- it's free to register. If you are interested but have questions, fill in the query form here
Or do you want to become a Participant
Register for free and you get access to try listed experiences, PLUS you get access to submit your wishlist for experiences you want to try. You also can take part in as many or as few experiences as you like. Find out about becoming a Participant here.
Have fun as you try new things, do things you never thought you could, impress your family and friends with your adventures,
and meet new people through hosted experiences.
Look through our list of hosted experiences here or check out The Wishlist for ideas.
When volunteering to share your interest or fulfil a wish, there is no long term commitment. We will be there to give you help with content; identifying what things participants need to bring, and things they need to consider beforehand.
For Experience Hosts, you decide how your experience is delivered. Once a person shows an interest in your experience, the Host and Participant (and/or their support person) will make direct contact with each other to arrange the details. Easy, flexible and fun!
