By volunteering with Red Cross, you can continue a tradition of voluntary service that began in Australia a century ago. You will work with humanitarian organisations that help the most disadvantaged people to escape poverty, recover from disasters and achieve safer, healthier lives. And we'll support you all the way.  

Volunteer jobs in Asia, Africa and the Pacific:
Community development, social work, disaster management, finance, health, communications and marketing

Assignments commence:
September 2014 (most assignments for 12 months)

Support provided:
Living allowances, airfares, insurance, training, health and in-country support

The Australian Volunteers for International Development program is open to Australian citizens or permanent residents, or New Zealand citizens with a Special Conditions Visa.
