Perhaps it’s time to share your expertise with the world.

Western recently joined the 2014-15 Leave for Change program, an initiative designed to engage university staff in international opportunities, offered through Western’s Staff Working Group on International Engagement.

Through this program, Western will select and sponsor two staff members, who will volunteer abroad in a developing country, sharing their knowledge and skills with others in an international community setting. 

All full-time staff with at least one year of full-time service time are eligible to apply. The cost of participating is free; all the staff member needs to contribute is their vacation time.

With postings ranging between three and four weeks, Leave for Change offers volunteer experiences in 11 different countries in Africa, Latin America and Asia. Where you go depends on the professional skills you can offer, priority areas, your interest and language skills.

Applications are due by May 20.

Those interested in applying to the program are encouraged to attend an information session at 11 a.m. Tuesday, April 22, in Dr. David S. Chu International Student Centre, Western Student Services Building, room 2130.
