Oxfam America CHANGE Initiative Summer Training for students

Posted by on March 23, 2009

The Oxfam America CHANGE Initiative is now accepting student applications for its free 2009 summer training in Boston July 18-24. Here is your chance to become more involved on your campus and community.

Apply by April 1 at: http://www.oxfamamerica.org/change

The CHANGE Initiative aims to develop capable and confident young leaders, who are active agents for positive social change. Oxfam is looking for a diverse group of undergraduate students – rising sophomores and juniors – committed to social justice issues. Students must have an interest in global issues including mining, climate change, hunger & poverty, and be willing to carry out campaigns on their campuses and in their communities.

We’ve put together a short video explaining the program and how it has made a difference in the lives of the students who participated in the summer training.

Watch the video and apply online at http://www.oxfamamerica.org/change.

Know someone who would make a good candidate? You can nominate students by going to the Tell a Friend section of our website at http://www.oxfamamerica.org/change. Students will be sent an email informing them of this opportunity at your request.

If you have any questions please call 800-77-OXFAM ext. 2464 or email CHANGE@oxfamamerica.org.

Applications are due April 1, 2009.

The CHANGE Initiative is a challenging and exciting program. Working together with Oxfam you can help end poverty and injustice.
