VOLUNTEERING ABROAD

 
VSO CANADA

VSO sends about 100 Canadians abroad each year, with experience suited to specific projects, primarily in education, health and business development. Their assignments are typically 1-2 years in length. Adam Hess describes the profile of people who volunteer for VSO.

Adam subsequently advised us that the upper age limit of 68 was due to insurance restrictions, but now, as a result of a change in insurance policy, that limit has been removed.

Describing the application process, Adam explains that, in assessing potential volunteers, they look for people with the skills required for the project, as well as personal flexibility to adapt to the conditions volunteers typically encounter on their assignments.
