Global volunteer opportunities for students

Oct 26/12

1) Reading Week 2013 Habitat Global Village-El Salvador, Laurier Student Build

The Global Village program sends volunteer teams overseas on short work projects. Global Village trips are designed to assist with building homes for families in need both through the fundraising efforts of the team members and their hands-on participation on a build. The costs of the trips vary, depending donations and fundraising efforts. No special construction skills are required just a desire to help and enthusiasm for meeting new people and learning about their culture. We are in the process of assessing interest, and actively seeking participants. Very soon we will confirm the details. If you would potentially be interested in joining a closed team for Wilfrid Laurier University students over reading week 2013, please contact Mary Crawford at or visit
