Aboriginal Volunteer Program
The Aboriginal Volunteer Program provides a unique opportunity for young Aboriginal people to use their life experiences, ideas and determination to contribute towards positive change in a remotely located community.
The program, which in 2013 saw its second year of delivery, is run through a partnership between Volunteering SA & NT, the South Australian Aboriginal Reference Group, Australian Volunteers International and the community of Oodnadatta, SA.
