Leave for Change 2012 applications now open

Tags: ,

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 being accepted for the 2012 Leave for Change volunteer program. The deadline for applications is Oct. 7, 2011.

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 Bolivia, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Guatemala, Malawi, Nepal, Vietnam and more.
