Partnerships Coordinator from the Australian Youth Ambassadors for Development Program, Alison Ford, will speak with University staff about opportunities to partner with the program when she visits Charles Darwin University next week.

The Australian Youth Ambassadors for Development (AYAD) Program is an AusAid funded volunteer sending program which supports young Australians who want to live, work and make a difference in the Asia Pacific Region.

Partnerships with the AYAD program allow academics to develop new links or strengthen existing links with companies, governments and organisations in the Asia Pacific region and raise the profile of departments and colleges in the region.

The program allows academic staff to participate in the professional development of young Australians while promoting their own work and interests in the Asia Pacific region.

Alison will present information about the opportunities for academic staff with the AYAD program as well as the VIDA Program (Volunteers for International Development from Australia) and will be available for questions and further inquiries about the scheme.

The AYAD and VIDA Information Session will be held in the SAIKS Seminar Room (Blue 3.1.12/13) from 2-3 pm on Tuesday, 31 March.  All interested CDU staff are welcome.
