Nau mai, haere mai, whakatau mai

Volunteer Service Abroad - Te Tūao Tāwāhi (VSA) is New Zealand’s largest and most experienced volunteer agency working in international development. VSA is a registered charity under the Charities Act 2005. 

VSA brings skilled New Zealanders together with our neighbours in the wider Pacific to share their experience and knowledge directly with local people and communities, working to transform lives and create a fair future for all.

Together with our regional neighbours in the Pacific and beyond, VSA volunteers create new opportunities for people that will continue to ripple across communities and generations to come.   

Connecting people - transforming lives.

Our e-volunteer programme is working well. This online programme enables people in New Zealand to assist our partners remotely and opens new opportunities to people who wish to support the work we do within the region but are unable to relocate.

Some New Zealanders who live abroad have joined our community as VSA volunteers and are assisting partners in our partner countries. We look forward to the future and deploying volunteers to the countries where appropriate. As part of preparing for borders to open, we are recruiting in some locations.
