Optimising Remote Volunteering

Going beyond the operational aspects of remote volunteering, and towards the experiential.


The program's remote volunteering offering was developed and launched rapidly in response to the COVID19 pandemic. Since its inception, we have continued to explore ways to enhance the remote volunteering modality, to ensure strong connections and support for volunteers and partner organisations.

What we're aiming to learn

  • How might we create meaningful, rewarding and connected experiences that our partners and volunteers would recommend to others?

Our expected impact


Improved experience and greater outcomes through deeper connections with partner organisations.

Partner organisations

Enhanced outcomes through greater alignment and connection with remote volunteers.

Broader impact

Continued relevance of the Australian Volunteers Program, with opportunities to demonstrate ongoing people-to-people engagement in the region.
