Put yourself in the middle of the most dynamic part of the world and make a difference – in all sorts of meaningful ways! Our international volunteer programs in Sydney offer an array of unique and invaluable experiences to every volunteer in our program. Sydney volunteers have the opportunity immerse themselves in, while giving back to, this amazing city. Connect-123 will work with you on designing the volunteer abroad program in Sydney that best suits your needs and provides benefit to those who need it!
Sydney volunteers can make an important contribution in any number of areas. While Australia is a thriving first-world country, there are still enormous economic and social imbalances that a wide range of organizations are looking to redress, and your help is deeply welcomed. We will individually match you to the project or initiative that fits best with your interests and skills.
