While USC Canada does not send volunteers overseas, we are thankful for the many volunteers that offer that we work with in Canada. Volunteers make an important contribution towards fulfilling our goals. They are part of our team, lending their skills, time, and expertise in such areas as public education, communications, campaigning, fundraising, and administration.
By volunteering at USC Canada you can:
- Support equality, justice, and human rights
- Gain valuable experience
- Learn more about international development and social justice
- Be part of positive global change
- Have your contributions valued
Where can I volunteer with USC Canada?
USC Canada has three types of volunteer placements.
- Working at our Ottawa office. This often involves preparing mailings, helping organize special events, helping produce communications materials (writing, revising, proof-reading), and performing general office tasks.PLEASE NOTE that currently we have a full complement of volunteers linked directly to the office.
- Working in your local region. This often involves attending to USC displays at events in your community, or getting involved in public education and advocacy campaigns.
- Working from home. Virtual volunteer placement often allows people to contribute to the organization using their own computer equipment, or offering skills that can be practiced from home.

Most of our overseas work is done through a network of partners and country offices, involving local staff people that have the expertise needed to promote resilient communities. So we don’t send Canadian volunteers overseas.
