Canberra: Australian Volunteers for International Development

If you're interested in volunteering overseas, come along to an Information Session to learn about the Australian Youth Ambassadors for Development (AYAD) and the Australian Volunteers for International Development (AVID) Program, both Australian Government initiatives.

The event will be fully catered for.

Come hear about how you could be contributing to change overseas, by volunteering in your area of expertise. Panellists of returned volunteers and Austraining staff will be sharing their experiences and stories, as well as advice about applying and what to expect if successful.

Volunteer roles (or ‘assignments’) are available in a variety of sectors including law, marketing, education, ICT, agriculture, human rights, engineering, health, finance, development, environment, media, arts and sports.

The program provides -

• Paid volunteer work through living allowances 
• Training before, during and after your volunteer assignment 
• Vaccinations 
• Medical and emergency support whilst in-country 
• Comprehensive insurance (travel, medical, security) 
• In-country support whilst on assignment 
• Flights 
• Visa costs

The Australian Youth Ambassadors for Development Program, part of Australian Volunteers for International Development, is fully funded by the Australian Government and is managed by Austraining International.
