Uniterra sends 450 Canadian volunteers abroad each year, a quarter of them retired, or near retirement. Chris Eaton, CEO of WUSC, describes how they select volunteers to work with partner organizations in Africa, Asia and South America, and how to apply for their international volunteering opportunities:
They are looking for people with a variety of management and technical skills to help NGOs or government agencies for periods ranging from three weeks to two years. They post their openings at Uniterra.ca. It’s best to apply for specific volunteer opportunities, but you can also send in your resume for ongoing consideration.
