Volunteers work with organisations overseas who are driving their own change.
You'll enhance their efforts to reduce poverty and improve livelihoods. The impacts are often realised long after you've gone. You'll also discover how volunteering will help enhance your career.
Whether it is strengthening governance, empowering women or improving health or education outcomes your efforts will support host organisations to deliver effective and sustainable development objectives.
International experience is highly desired by employers. By working overseas, you'll gain new and diversified skills and enhance your global literacy.
Lifelong bonds are formed, world views are changed and you become a part of Australia's history of global diplomacy.
From emergency care in Papua New Guinea to defending women's rights in Indonesia, Australian volunteers share their experiences.
