Thank you for taking the time to apply to GFF HELPS. Because our programme intake is small (around 20 per year) we cannot guarantee that we will have an opportunity available. But we will certainly keep your application on file and approach you if something becomes available that is a good match for you.

Fill out the application form below. Have a digital copy of your passport and your CV on hand as we will ask you to upload it. Please also make sure you have read the Terms and Conditions before you make your application. Once we receive your application form, we will process it and then let you know when the next projects are starting. If there is a project available, we will ask you for a screening interview via Skype, and then we will ask you to come to the office for an interview if you are able, otherwise this will also be conducted via Skype. It generally takes about 3 months to prepare for departure because of vaccinations, visas and project planning. If you don’t hear back about your application form after two weeks, you can email us on [email protected] to follow up.

Thank you, we look forward to meeting you!


  • Note that currently we are only accepting applicants residing in Sydney or New Zealand. This is because we need you to be available to attend a briefing before you depart, and an evaluation meeting when you return to Sydney or NZ.



    Being a GFF Representative is different to regular volunteer programmes in that you initiate your own projects - with our help of course. Below is a general list of what kinds of projects you might be interested in implementing. Tick all those you would want to try and feel able to do.
  • Is there a project you have in mind that you would like us to consider? Or some experience with a successful programme we could replicate?

  • Please mention what you were doing, where, and for how long.
