Volunteer with local people and organisations to help transform lives.


VSA assignments are created with local people to meet local needs - so our volunteers only go where our support has been requested in the wider Pacific. VSA volunteers come from all walks of life sharing their skills and knowledge in areas including: business, communications, engineering, IT, horticulture, health and tourism.

What VSA looks for in our volunteers:


All VSA's volunteering assignments are based on our principle of skills-sharing, where committed Kiwi volunteers work alongside local people to enable them to build a better future for themselves and their children.  We look for people who are positive, flexible and resilient with great relationship-building and mentoring skills. 


What VSA provides:


We'll cover the costs of flights, accommodation and a living allowance. Visas, insurance, medical costs and some other costs are organised and funded by VSA. Couples are welcome to apply for longer term volunteer assignments.
