About the Alumni
The Australian Volunteers Program Alumni is an alumni-driven and led network for all past Australian volunteers.
The Alumni welcomes past Australian volunteers from all chapters of Australian Government-funded international volunteering programs. It helps past volunteers stay connected with each other and the Australian Volunteers Program, as well as supporting wider awareness of the value of volunteering and increasing greater cultural awareness and connections across countries.
- Anyone who has been an Australian Government-funded international volunteer is welcome to join the Alumni.
- Volunteers automatically become part of the Alumni when they complete their assignments.
- There are more than 7,500 Alumni members across Australia and overseas.
- The Alumni is an Australian Government initiative and is funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade as part of the Australian Volunteers Program.
We have a new five-year Australian Volunteers Program Alumni Strategy 2022-2027.
