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.

We are monitoring the global situation and prepare for future deployments of volunteers as restrictions ease and are running a number of online volunteer assignments to connect with our partners abroad. This means we continue to recruit and build our talent pool of volunteers and work with partners to identify how we can best support them and communities in the wider Pacific.
