Volunteer Programmes

VSA works closely with local partner organisations to identify the requirements of each assignment.
Demand for skills varies, as does the need for in-country vs e-volunteer assignments, so make sure to check our regularly updated opportunities to see if we have a role that matches your skillset.

Volunteer Abroad

Experience local impact and opportunities first-hand by taking your skillset across the moana and immerse yourself in the complete cultural experience that is guaranteed when volunteering in-country. All current in-country assignments can be found on our ‘Volunteer Opportunities’ page.

Volunteer from New Zealand

We offer an e-volunteering programme as an alternative if you are unable to leave the country or leave your current responsibilities, but still want to make a difference. Volunteering remotely provides you with the opportunity to build the capabilities of international organisations while giving you the flexibility of being remote. Most e-vol assignments are part-time and all current e-vol assignments can be found on our ‘Volunteer Opportunities’ page.


A blended assignment means volunteers will experience a mix of both e-volunteering and in-country while under one assignment with the same local partner. All current blended assignments can be found on our ‘Volunteer Opportunities’ page.
