The final stage of the application process is the Australian Volunteers Briefing. All recommended candidates must attend this four-day briefing, generally held the month before you depart on assignment.
At the briefing, you will meet other volunteers, returned volunteers and members of the AVID support staff from Scope Global.
The Australian Volunteers Briefing will provide detailed information relevant to your upcoming assignment including:
- policies and expectations of the AVID program
- the Australian aid program – its objectives, work in the region, capacity building and sustainable development
- cross-cultural communication and health and safety in-country
The AVID program covers the domestic travel and accommodation costs of attending the Australian Volunteers Briefing.
Occasionally, things don’t go according to plan. Scope Global reserves the right to withdraw a volunteer assignment at any stage of the assignment, selection or pre-departure preparation process.
