Oxfam America CHANGE Initiative
The Oxfam America CHANGE Initiative is now accepting student applications for the 2006-2007 academic year. The CHANGE Initiative aims to develop capable and confident young leaders, who are active agents for positive social change. Oxfam America is looking for a diverse group of undergraduate students – rising sophomores and juniors – committed to social justice issues. Students must have an interest in issues such as the international impact of mining, Fair Trade Coffee, global hunger, and international trade, and be willing to carry out a campaign on their campus and in their community.
All students must attend a US college or university. Selected students are required to participate in the training in Boston July 22-28, initiate a campaign on their campus and communicate regularly with Oxfam staff and each other about the work they are undertaking. All costs for travel and the training will be covered in full by Oxfam.
Applications are due by April 1, 2006. We strongly encourage online applications at <a href="http://www.oxfamamerica.org/change">http://www.oxfamamerica.org/change</a>. If you have any questions please call 1-800-77-OXFAM ext. 464 or email CHANGE@oxfamamerica.org.

This year you can nominate students by going to the Tell a Friend section of our website at <a href="http://www.oxfamamerica.org/change">http://www.oxfamamerica.org/change</a>.
