AVSO aims to promote (long-term) Voluntary Service by lobbying governmental institutions, by networking with non-governmental and public organisations, by organising seminars on issues related to Voluntary Service, by publish-ing and disseminating information. AVSO strives for a legal status for volunteers as non-employees and their sending and hosting organisations as non-employers in order to overcome the problems of visas, residence and work permits, social benefits etc.
