Become a Committee Member


 

AIYA has volunteers all across Australia and Indonesia. Committee members are between the ages of 16-35 years old and are full paid members. You do not need to be based in a particular location to join a committee, however, Chapter committees are generally comprised of people located in that state, territory or province.
