The Australian Volunteers Program is an Australian government funded initiative that has placed skilled volunteers overseas for over 60 years. Our volunteer assignments are driven by local objectives and needs of our partner organisations, located in 26 countries across Indo-Pacific.
Apply your technical skills and unique experiences to make a significant contribution to countries and communities overseas, all while working and living in Australia. Remote volunteering is flexible. Volunteer at a time and location that suits your needs while still making an impact overseas.
Support is available every step of the way, with training and resources, and advice from our in-country teams who are here to help you navigate your volunteer journey. A small allowance is provided to help with costs of working remotely. You will also join a network of thousands of current and past Australian volunteers.
The vision of the Samoa Cancer Society (SCS) is for a cancer free Samoa with a mission to be committed to working with partners, stakeholders and the whole community to minimise the incidence and impact of cancer through support services, evidence based advocacy, awareness raising and prevention programs. In reviewing its strategic plan (2018-2020), it was identified that to help SCS communicate effectively and meet core organisational objectives, an effective communications strategy was needed to be designed. This will be the first ever communications strategy to be developed since the establishment of the Samoa Cancer Society in 1998. As a non-government, non-profit organisation SCS continues to find opportunities for sustainability through stakeholders engagement and fundraising activities. Recently it has increased its efforts towards project funding opportunities with proposals presented to international donors to address some of the gaps in the SCS services to the community. SCS aims to engage effectively with stakeholders, demonstrate the success of their work, ensure people understand what they do and change behavior and perceptions where necessary. SCS therefore, is seeking the support of a remote volunteer to help them to reach this goal.
