Leave for change - corporate volunteer stream

Since 2004 Canadian organizations have partnered with WUSC through Leave for Change to send their employees on a skilled volunteer assignment to support our partners in Africa and Asia.

Leave for Change is a three way partnership between the employer, employee and WUSC. The employer offers volunteering opportunities to their employees; the employee uses their vacation time to take part; and WUSC fully supports, facilitates and organizes the volunteer assignment.

Over the course of a three to four week assignment, Leave for Change volunteers share their specialised skills and expertise to strengthen the work of our local partner organizations who are working to create a better world for all young people.

68% of Canadians, given the choice between two jobs, would choose the one with the strong volunteer culture.
