The University of Guelph was the first university in Canada to support Leave for Change, an initiative that allows employees to volunteer overseas for short assignments in developing countries. The program offers an amazing opportunity to contribute your knowledge and skills to work in an international development project, expand your personal and professional horizons and acquire a deeper understanding of broader global issues.
The University traditionally raises the largest single contribution from a Guelph organization through fundraising and other volunteer activities for the United Way of Guelph and Wellington.
A Partner in the Time to Give Challenge
