We have a range of dynamic volunteering opportunities in both Australia and Papua New Guinea (PNG) for both groups and individuals of all ages. Join us on our Training and Medical Ship in PNG, serve at our campus in sunny Townsville, or gather a group of teens and participate in our Youth Adventures program.
