All VSA's volunteering assignments are based on our principle of skills-sharing - committed volunteers from Aotearoa New Zealand working alongside committed local people. Our volunteers come from a wide range of backgrounds, from accountants and lawyers, to sports trainers and eco-tourism operators.
As a VSA volunteer we provide you with a living allowance that is sufficient to support yourself during assignment. We'll also supply you with accommodation, return flights, comprehensive insurance cover, and visas and permits.
