​The Australian Volunteers program is part of Australia’s people-to-people program portfolio. Funded by Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), the Program sends Australian volunteers on assignments overseas that are designed to sustainably build the capacity of people, organisations, communities and institutions. Through meaningful volunteer assignments, the program creates enduring links between Australians and people and organisations in partner countries.

Cardno forms part of the program management consortium with Australian Volunteers International (AVI) and The Whitelum Group. Cardno’s role is to provide a Contractor Representative and Deputy Program Director and support AVI in developing new systems and approaches to ensure high performance as a managing contractor.
