What Qualifications Do I Need To Volunteer Abroad With AVA?

At AVA we believe everyone has something to offer in developing countries around the globe. Whether you are a high school or college student who is looking for work experience or you are retired and find you have some extra time on your hands and would like to take that opportunity to help change the lives of those less fortunate. AVA will help you find the right placement to make the most of your specific skills.


First go to our volunteer opportunities page and decide which placement is right for you.


Once you have decided which opportunity best suits your needs, simply fill out our online application form. Remember to add information about any experience you have that will help you once you are at your placement. This may be anything from babysitting or helping a younger sibling with homework to many years of experience working in construction to working in customer service to traveling the world. It's your responsibility to provide us with any information which could be relevant to your placement. It's better to give too much information then not enough.


Once you have sent us your application we will process it and get back to you within 2 business days.
