We are now accepting applications for the 2014 Leave for Change volunteer program. The deadline for applications is Sept. 26, 2013.
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. 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.
Visit our 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. Please note that this year, Leave for Change participants must have completed their placements by March 31, 2014.
