Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have unique skills, knowledge and experience that can help contribute to meaningful change in communities overseas.
International volunteering is a life-changing opportunity to share your knowledge and skills and learn new perspectives while connecting with another culture. Indigenous Australians are uniquely placed to combine their personal and professional experiences with an understanding of the importance of culture, communication, and sustainability in development. The learning that you develop on a volunteer assignment can also be brought back to your own community to drive change.
Indigenous Pathways is an Indigenous-led program that focuses on expanding and strengthening Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participation in international volunteering, by providing culturally safe, flexible and tailored support.
We currently offer remote volunteering, which allows you to volunteer online, whilst working and living in Australia. Assignments can be part-time or full-time and range from two weeks to three months in duration. The program works with community, government, and not-for-profit organisations across a range of sectors, in 26 different countries, with lots of assignments to choose from.
