The Australian Volunteers for International Development (AVID) program is an Australian Government initiative. The program offers a range of opportunities for the Australian community to share skills and foster linkages with people and organisations in developing countries to make a difference as part of Australia's overseas aid program. So why should you volunteer with the AVID Program?
Did your volunteer assignment inspire an idea you think could help solve a development problem?
We’d like to help you develop this idea at a two-part Innovation Exploration: Impact through AVID Workshop.
This workshop will grow your knowledge of innovation in aid and development, and help you make your idea a reality!
