The health and safety of our participants, our partners and local community groups in the developing world is of paramount importance to us. We are acutely aware of the impact COVID-19 is having and wish to do everything we can to protect our interns, volunteers and the local people in communities we partner with.

Therefore we have made the decision to continue to suspend ALL of our international in-country and remote volunteer and internship programs for 2022 (based on advice from the WHO, CDC, DFAT and the Australian Department of Health).

We hope to be able to provide our services again in 2023, and will provide an update here towards the end of this year. 


Development Together assists in finding volunteer, work experience and internship placements with ethical, sustainable community development partners around the world. You will work collaboratively on needs based projects that have a lasting and positive impact on the local community.
