AVI has the networks and approach for designing partnerships that work


Who we work with

We look for innovative and cost-effective ways for governments, the private-sector, universities and donors to work with our 2,500 local partner organisations, forming coalitions across borders that contribute to sustained outcomes.

What we do

From corporate, skilled and student volunteer placements, to technical training, organisational strengthening and capacity development, we offer international services and facilitate the design of partnerships that deliver shared value.

How we do it

With 100 staff, nine offices globally and experience working in 89 countries, we have a proven track record of managing people in complex international settings. We take risk mitigation and program quality seriously.


"Put simply, without AVI we would not have been able to offer students volunteering programs of the quality and depth of community engagement that we now provide."
