Volunteer with us in Australia or Papua New Guinea

Looking for an opportunity to serve while meeting new people and experiencing a new culture? YWAM Townsville has a range of dynamic volunteering opportunities both in Australia and Papua New Guinea for both groups and individuals of all ages. Join us on our Medical Ship in PNG, serve at our campus in sunny Townsville or gather a group of youth or young adults and participate in our Youth Adventures program.


An adventurous missions experience, a YWAM DTS will have you taking part in training and missions practice at our city campus before heading on outreach where you’ll put all you’ve learned into action!

Mission Building

If you have a heart to serve a vision, and want a place to connect for a short time, then Mission Building is for you! Whether you are skilled or unskilled, if you are over 18, have two weeks to three months of time, and want to make a difference – then we have a project for you.

Medical Ship

Volunteering on the YWAM Medical Ship is an adventure filled opportunity where you can make a difference and experience the beautiful Papua New Guinea culture. We partner with local health care providers to provide training and medical care to some of PNG’s most remote areas.

Youth Adventures

Youth Adventures offers short-term opportunities for teams and individuals to come together to be challenged, grow in cross-cultural understanding, and serve courageously. An initial hands-on training phase preps teams to volunteer in North Queensland or Papua New Guinea for outreach.
