A passport can help change the world


Where do you want to volunteer?

We welcome interest from people wanting to volunteer for us in Melbourne, Australia, or at our partner organisations overseas. If you want to help us out here in Australia, see the link below for more information. If you are interested in a unique and very memorable experience volunteering in Zambia or Sri Lanka, see also the links to those pages below.

RoundTrip links volunteers with our partner organisations – we do not run volunteer programs overseas ourselves. However, we can give you plenty of information about the experience, what to expect and how you can make a difference. We can then put you in touch with the right people on the ground for more info and to make the necessary arrangements.

Check out these articles on Voluntourism and Responsible Volunteering in Africa for some very useful insights, and for advice on volunteering overseas.

If you prefer something more formal we recommend the Australian Volunteers Program (open to Australian citizens only). It offers diverse opportunities in countries around the world but especially in the Asia Pacific region. Volunteers are given training, local language tuition and a stipend to cover expenses.
