International Volunteering

To find a volunteer opportunity abroad, you can seek advice from your faculty, recognized organization or you may identify a project you would like to participate in yourself.

Before volunteering abroad, it’s important to do your own research on volunteer organizations, to choose a good, reliable and reputable one that shares your values. Here is a Going Abroad Checklist (PDF Version, 281 KB) to help you with questions that you should ask and matters you should consider before making a decision.  You can also consult the My World Abroad Website. You have access to this tool free of charge using your uOttawa email address.

If you wish to discuss a project, we would be happy to meet you. Send an email to to schedule an appointment.
