Alliance Volunteer Opportunities allow volunteers to use their passions and skill sets to fill a specific need with one of the three other Alliance Missions Structures (Compassion and Mercy Associates, Marketplace Ministries, aXcess) around the world!
Alliance Missions has workers serving around the globe within our four unique specializations: Envision, Compassion and Mercy Associates (CAMA), Marketplace Ministries, and aXcess.
Serve among the greater Alliance Missions family!
Alliance Volunteer Opportunities (AVO) are for people who want to support an Alliance International Worker in a hands-on way for at least 1 month up to 11 months. This is the perfect program for anyone wanting to participate in a specific ministry opportunity or in a location that Envision does not have a site. AVOs demonstrate that there is space for everyone to serve through the greater Alliance Missions!
Our AVOs are created from job descriptions created by full-time Alliance Workers serving around the world. This program is seeking individuals with specific skills and passion for fulfilling unique short-term service needs.
All participants in the Alliance Volunteer Opportunity program are sent out through the Envision Office following a process of application, interview, background check, and acceptance to the program. AVOs are fully support-based and attend a required pre-launch training offered two times annually.
HERE are some current AVO opportunities, or what we call VODs (Volunteer Opportunity Descriptions).
To apply, you must start with an initial conversation with the Envision National Office!

Before I came here I heard and was taught a lot of theory and theology, but now I feel like I understand how to live it out
My time was extremely valuable in preparing me for ministry with an accurate idea of what international work looks like
If I were to choose one word to describe my experience as an Envision AVO this past year, I would say "growth." God has used so many people, especially my team, and so many new experiences to teach me more and more of who He is and more and more of how to become more like Christ...By the grace of God, I can say I am not the same girl who stepped on a plane just over a year ago.
