Looking for the Australian Youth Ambassadors for Development (AYAD) program website or info?! You're in the right place! As of July 1, 2014, the Australian Youth Ambassadors for Development program was retired, to make a single Australian Government volunteering program, Australian Volunteers for International Development (AVID). Through the AVID program you will have access to more than 700 assignments which are open for application each year. To make it easier for applicants who are at an earlier stage in their career, we've listed assignments with up to 3 years experience on a special page called Early Career Opportunities.
AVID assignments are advertised on a monthly basis, with about 700 opportunities each year for young Australians to live, work and make a difference in developing countries. Applications for assignments advertised on the first of each month close by the 21st of the same month.
Stay up to date with the latest Australian Volunteers for International Development (AVID) news and opportunities by signing up to the registered interest list. You will receive a monthly e-newsletter, containing volunteer information relevant to your skills and regions of interest, and you’ll be the first know about the latest events.
