Apply Now for Leave for Change Program

Posted on Wednesday, February 20th, 2019

Written by Evelina Rog, Senior Consultant, Learning and Development, HR

We are currently recruiting U of G employees for the Leave for Change program, which HR sponsors. It’s a terrific personal and professional development opportunity for staff and faculty to volunteer in a developing country. All you need to contribute is 3 or 4 weeks of your vacation time (between June 2019 – February 2020) and your skills; all costs and arrangements are taken care of for you.

See the poster attached and the Leave for Change website: https://www.uoguelph.ca/hr/staff-faculty/leave-change

For more information, you can contact Evelina Rog, Senior Consultant, HR Learning and Development at roge@uoguelph.ca, ext. 54332, or landd@uoguelph.ca, ext. 56800.

Did you know:

  • 74 U of G staff and faculty have been on Leave for Change to 12 countries
  • U of G continues to contribute the most volunteers to the Leave for Change program
  • Many interested employees don’t apply – sometimes for years – because they assume they “don’t have anything to offer.” Everyone has something to offer!
  • You know your clients best and therefore, you have better influence than any marketing we could do:  you may know of an employee or two who has skills to offer and may be interested and/or have extra vacation time to use up.
