The terrific Australian Youth Ambassadors for Development program is seeking new applicants – closing date 7 March for a July 2008 start. Here’s the blurb they emailed out.
I work for Austraining International. We run the Australian Youth Ambassadors for Development Program (AYAD), which places 18-30 year olds (mostly graduates) in volunteer assignments within developing countries in the Asia Pacific Region. Our new assignments are listed 3 times per year on our website and they are from 3 – 12 months in duration. The assignments we offer cover a diverse range of sectors including Education, Environment, Gender, Governance, Health Infrastructure, Rural Development and Trades.Â The Youth Ambassadors receive a living and accommodation allowance, plus we cover all airfares, medicals and pre-departure training. The full list of assignments is available on our website www.ayad.com.au and they close on 7 March 2008.
