Indigenous Community Volunteers (ICV)

 

Description

Indigenous Community Volunteers (ICV) is a non-profit, non-government organisation that works in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and organisations through linking skilled and trained volunteers to projects that have been identified as part of a community's vision or development plan.

ICV supports projects that have engagement by local people in their development and implementation and will improve the quality-of-life, health, and social and economic wellbeing in the community. ICV's community development work aims creates a two-way exchange. It provides Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with development opportunities and access to skilled people to help them achieve their goals, whilst also giving volunteers the chance to live and work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, to learn first-hand about their issues and culture. ICV aims to ensure they are doing projects 'with' rather than 'for' Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
