What makes volunteering with us so special?

We see volunteering as a way of achieving social change.

Bringing people from around the world together to do something practical and learn about each other is a great start. As an IVP volunteer you should be ready to ask and be asked; to question and explain your values and those of your society; to share information and to teach and be taught.

Our activities encourage understanding, promote discussion and an appreciation of the problems that different communities face in their struggles for social justice and environmental harmony.

How Can I Help

Thank you for your interest in IVP. There are so many ways you can help. We are a community of ordinary people making a real difference. Not only do we help others, that sense of accomplishment you feel from volunteering is simply indescribable.


IVP acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the country throughout Australia. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. We recognise their continuing connection to land waters, and we celebrate the stories, culture and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
