Event:
travel for good - overseas volunteer information sessions
Are you interested in travelling overseas and using your skills for the greater good whilst visiting nations around the globe?

The Australian Volunteers for International Development (AVID) program is a volunteer initiative funded by the Australian Government. This program provides airfares, allowances and insurances. Hmmm, starting to pique your interest yet? Sounds to me like an event worth attending.

Free information sessions are being held in Adelaide on the 9th May, 2017. Specifically, you will explore how you can get involved, what countries you can visit and what you can do overseas in conjunction with AVID's partner organisations.
