What is volunteering for CECI?

For us, international volunteering represents a professional and personal commitment through which individuals play a crucial role in enhancing the impact of partner organizations, contributing directly to their deployment and evolution.

Our approach to volunteering is based on exchange, sharing and respect, aimed at encouraging intercultural collaboration. For us, it is imperative that volunteering be synonymous with equal relationships, with all parties involved on both sides identifying and elaborating learning objectives, and sharing the benefits of the process. Volunteering requires critical reflection on international power dynamics.

  • Be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, with a permanent address in Canada.
  • Want to live a transformative experience and be sensitive to international issues.
  • Be available for a flexible period of between 4 and 12 months, internationally or totally virtually from Canada;
  • Have a profile corresponding to one of the mandates and be selected by the local partner organization.
