Volunteer security is our number one priority. 24-hour emergency support is provided by Scope Global staff in-country.
During orientation, Scope Global staff will brief you on the security situation in country and provide advice on ensuring personal security during your assignment. The security situation in each country is constantly monitored by DFAT, partner governments and Scope Global staff. Any risks are immediately communicated to volunteers.
As the AVID program operates in developing countries, instability is not uncommon. If the worst happens and a natural disaster occurs, evacuation may be necessary. Following evacuation, your options may include remobilisation when the security risk reduces, mobilisation to a similar assignment elsewhere or termination of your assignment.
