Volunteer overseas

Australian Red Cross no longer sends volunteers overseas through the Australian Volunteers for International Development (AVID) program.

We will look for new ways to make volunteering a part of our everyday work.

Insights on international volunteering

Our partnership with the Australian Government will see international volunteering embedded within our ongoing humanitarian and development work. We are proud of our time in the AVID program and what was achieved through 509 volunteer assignments with 209 partner organisations across 15 countries.  

We have published a series of reports, research papers and evaluations. We hope these can inform future international volunteer programs.
