Australian Volunteers for International Development (AVID)

Australian Volunteers for International Development (AVID) was launched in July 2011; is an Australian Government initiative, funded and delivered by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) in partnership with Australian Volunteers International (AVI), Scope Global and Australian Red Cross (ARC).

The program aims to:

  • build understanding of Australia’s international role and commitment to integration with the Indo-Pacific region;
  • increase the number of volunteers working to improve the economic livelihoods of people in developing countries; and
  • develop volunteer assignments in priority areas of governance, health, social infrastructure and services and education.

Working in partnership

In delivering the AVID program, AVI works with partner organisations in countries across Africa, the Pacific, and Asia. These organisations are already making an impact in their own communities, whether it is delivering health and education services or advocating for human rights.

AVID volunteers working on AVI volunteer assignments do not replace local jobs, instead work to strengthen the activities of our partner organisations.

Volunteering with AVID

All AVID assignments are about developing capacity; helping to strengthen local organisations and communities. AVID volunteers receive ongoing support while on assignment including airfares, living and accommodation allowances, insurance, training and visas.

See all the AVI managed AVID assignments.

Become an Australian Partner

As an organisation, you can support the AVID program as an Australian partner.

Partnerships between AVI and Australian organisations maximise Australia's contributions to overseas development and help to raise awareness of the Australian aid program and the role of volunteering at home and overseas.

The Australian Volunteers for International Development (AVID) program is an Australian Government initiative. This program has been developed by Australian Volunteers International, a delivery partner for the AVID program.
