Information sessions

Register for an information session and learn how you can get involved

Come along to a free information session about the Australian Volunteers Program.

Everyone is welcome. Registration is essential.

Hundreds of Australians take up the challenge to live and work in developing countries every year. The Australian Volunteers Program matches a broad range of skilled Australians with partner organisations in the Indo-Pacific region.

Come to an information session and meet:

  • Australian Volunteers Program staff who will share insights into the application process and explain what support you receive as an Australian volunteer.
  • Returned Australian volunteers who will 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.
