About this Event

Come along to a free information session about the Australian Volunteers Program. Everyone is welcome. Registration is essential. Refreshments will be provided.

Come to an information session and meet:

  • Australian Volunteers Program staff who will share insights into the application process. They can also explain what support you receive as an Australian volunteer.
  • Returned Australian volunteers who can share their experience on the program and give you a glimpse of what life is like as a volunteer.
  • Other like-minded Australians interested in sharing their skills overseas.

Hundreds of Australians take up the challenge to live and work in developing countries every year

The Australian Government has supported skilled Australians to volunteer overseas for over 60 years.

The Australian Volunteers Program matches a broad range of skilled Australians with partner organisations in the Indo-Pacific region.

This is a fully-supported volunteer program

We understand that volunteering overseas is a big commitment. We provide support so you can focus on what matters.

Australian volunteers are supported with:

  • Training
  • Return airfares
  • A living and accommodation allowance
  • Language training
  • In-country support
  • 24-hour health and emergency support and more.

We encourage people with disabilities, families, people from the LGBTIQ+ community and Indigenous Australians to apply.
