GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP VOLUNTEERINGAre you an experienced traveller? Are you looking for something beyond exchange or study tours?
If so then why not look at opportunities that are on offer through the Global Citizenship Volunteering projects. If you have undertaken a Deakin international program of some kind, have joined (or plan to join) the Global Citizenship Program and wish to get involved in volunteering, you can sign up as a student leader in one of the many Global Citizenship Volunteering projects that are offered each year.
Global Citizenship Volunteering projects run for 2-3 weeks in both the Inter-Trimester break (June/July) and Trimester 3 (Nov-Feb). Projects are open to students from all faculties and you have the choice to participate on a credit or non-credit basis. Read through the 2014 Volunteering book for more information or contact the Volunteer Coordinator for further details.
To see what Global Citizenship Volunteering is all about check out the following video from a 2013 project in Fiji.
