Each year, hundreds of Australians take up the challenge to live and work in developing countries as part of the Australia Volunteers for International Development program.

These Australian volunteers work in a range of sectors including education, environment, IT, finance, sport, marketing/communications, health, law and skilled trades. Information sessions are an excellent opportunity to learn more about the AVID program.

A Q&A panel of returned volunteers and Scope Global staff will be sharing their experiences and stories, as well as giving advice about applying and what to expect if successful. The evening session will be followed by a catered networking event with returned volunteers and guest speakers. Attendees at the information session are most welcome to stay on and join this event.
