Volunteer Overseas

Volunteers are at the heart of our international development efforts.

Whether a Canadian looking to have a positive impact overseas or an individual driving change in their own community, our volunteers are advancing development efforts in Africa, Asia, and the Americas.

WUSC is harnessing the expertise of Canadian volunteers to enhance program delivery in a variety of countries. These are unique short-, medium-, and long-term opportunities to contribute directly to WUSC's broader work in education, employment and empowerment around the world.
