Volunteer at P3 Foundation

What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.

Youth-Led Organisation

P3 Foundation is New Zealand’s youth movement against poverty. We are made up of over 130 passionate volunteers driven by a collective desire to end extreme poverty in our generation. Because we are youth-led, we are innovative, inclusive and experimental. We take risks because we believe every person deserves the chance to follow their dreams.

P3 Foundation runs 5 Projects per Year

Pay Fair Trade Forward

PFTF is a social experiment that educates consumer about fair trade and ethical consumerism. Using the ‘pay it forward’ concept, people become aware of the impact they make by thinking about what they purchase.

The SEED Programme

The year long SEED Programme engages high school students with the issue of extreme poverty and empowers them to address it directly by providing workshops which enable participants to implement their own fundraising initiatives.

Live Below the Line

Live Below the Line asks participants to live on just $2.25 a day for five days to raise awareness and funds for those living in extreme poverty in the Asia Pacific region.

World Changers

P3 Foundation hosts these leadership conferences in centres all over New Zealand. They give university students the chance to meet inspirational leaders, develop new skills, and make lasting connections.

Social Enterprise Competition

This entrepreneurial challenge aims to create change agents and future leaders of social innovation. High school students come up with innovative and practical solutions for national or international social issues.


Since 2011 we have raised over $100,000 for development work in India, Burma, Indonesia and Tonga. We are absolutely open about where donations go. To end extreme poverty, we need to be smart about development. Good intentions aren’t enough. What we do has to be based on best practice. Development work must be holistic, empowering and sustainable. No one knows more about a community than the people in it, so our local partners put them at the forefront of their development projects.
