Information sessions

Learn about the Australian Volunteers Program and how you can become an Australian volunteer.

Join us for an information session

Learn about the Australian Volunteers Program, how remote volunteering works and what life's like as a volunteer at an information session. There will be a Q&A so have your questions ready.

We're holding both online, and in-person events (Melbourne, Sydney and Alice Springs). Online information sessions will have a focus on specific countries and sectors, including:

  • What it's like to support organisations in Tanzania and Southern Africa, with on-the-ground advice from our in-country teams.
  • How you can volunteer in the health, speech pathology and occupational therapy sectors, with first-hand tips from volunteers.

Keep an eye out over the next few months as we'll be adding more locations, as well as more sector-specific events. Register below to find out about future dates.
