Who: The Whangarei Community in partnership with Incedo New Zealand (anticipating 50 staff and 100-150 youth from all over the country)

We will be doing everything from painting, to clean up, to trail repair, to helping old ladies cross the street and everything in between…

When: Thursday 16th April- Sunday 19th April 2009

Where: Out of town volunteers accommodated at local maraes, schools, churches, etc.

Why: To demonstrate, and inspire the increased impact of partnering together to work for the good of others. Also to give young people and example of what it means to help others and show them something else to do with their weekends.

Surge is an annual project run by Incedo New Zealand (
