Borderless World Volunteers
Borderless World Volunteers was founded to provide a link between university students and local development organizations in developing countries. During the academic year, students identify organizations in developing countries who are in need of assistance and capacity building. Throughout the academic year, students work closely with the organization to understand their issues and co-develop solutions. In the summer, the students travel to work with the organization to implement the project. An important aspect of this field work is ensuring that the skills learned and programs implemented are successfully transferred to the organization to ensure its long term sustainability. By enabling students to have applied learning, we endeavour to build the next generation of leaders in global development.
