Global issues. Leadership skills. Campus actions.
Oxfam America, a global organization that works to right the wrongs of poverty, hunger, and injustice is now accepting applications for its student leadership program. The CHANGE Initiative allows rising college sophomores and juniors to develop their leadership skills, explore policy issues, and create social change locally and globally; while exposing them to the international development issues that inform Oxfam’s work. After, the students selected as CHANGE Leaders apply their skills and creativity to promote Oxfam issues on campus. We are looking for dynamic students with ideas, connections, and a dedication to social justice around the world.
Selected students participate in a week-long training in Boston, July 19-25, 2014, which is organized and paid for by Oxfam. Students then work with Oxfam on campus during the 2014-15 academic year and join or form an Oxfam Club to implement an Oxfam campaign on campus.
Applications are due April 1, 2014. Learn more about the CHANGE Initiative and read the FAQ at: http://www.oxfamamerica.org/change.
