Welcome to your Returned Australian Volunteer Network (RAVN)
RAVN is for returned volunteers from all Australian Government-funded overseas volunteering programs. It is a alumni network that helps you to connect with other returned volunteers and the Australian Volunteer program, as well as serving as a space to advocate for wider awareness of volunteering and Australian aid.
This year, the RAVN May events are being held alongside National Volunteer Week. Here are five returned volunteers who are make exemplary contributions, and who you'll also see at the Perth and Sydney RAVN events this month.
On the eve of the Commonwealth Games and the International Day of Sports for Development and Peace, RAVN brought together over 30 returned volunteers, representatives from DFAT, Partner Organisations, athletes and sports professionals in Brisbane.
