Every year, UBC sends six staff members abroad on the Leave for Change program, to volunteer in developing countries, sharing their knowledge and skills with others in an international setting. Applications are now open for the 2013 Leave for Change volunteer program. The application deadline is October 5.
Together with international volunteer agency Uniterra, UBC works to provide successful applicants with a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Volunteer positions are diverse and range from technology training to youth leadership. Placements are offered in Botswana, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Guatemala, Malawi, Nepal, Senegal, Vietnam and more.
Visit the Leave for Change website to learn about eligibility and application process, program deadlines, and important information for applicants, as well as checking out the online diaries of past Leave for Change participants.
