About this Event

Everyone is welcome. Registration is essential.

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.

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 26 developing countries.

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, couples, people with children, people from the LGBTIQ+ community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to apply.
