Apply Now for Leave for Change Program
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.
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.
