Finishing your assignment

Learn about wrapping up an assignment and what can come next

Preparing for the end of your assignment is an important step for both you and your partner organisation. As you near the assignment end date, helpful tips around preparing to finish will be available through the volunteer portal.

  • Consider how to manage the handover with your partner organisation and any documentation you need to prepare.
  • Request references from your partner organisation.
  • Complete an end-of-assignment evaluation and exit interview.


The program also provides access to an optional psychological debrief, a service that is available up to one month after your assignment end date.

You will also be invited to attend a Post-Assignment Workshop. This is an opportunity to meet and share your experience with other past volunteers and learn strategies for adjusting to life after your assignment.

Join our alumni network

All volunteers become a member of the program's alumni when they have completed their assignments. The Alumni network provides opportunities to connect with other past volunteers and stay engaged with the Australian Volunteers Program.
