About the Australian Volunteers Program
Volunteers contribute to the capacity of host organisations, develop people-to-people links and generate goodwill for domestic and foreign public diplomacy.

The Australian Volunteers Program supports organisations in developing countries by matching them with skilled Australians. The program uses international volunteering as a people-centered approach to capacity development. Our volunteers help our partner organisations deliver on their own development objectives.
