Volunteers

Since 1961, Cuso International has deployed nearly 13,000 volunteers around the world. From coast to coast in Canada, volunteers have travelled to Asia, Africa, South America and the Caribbean to integrate into communities for months, even years, to share their professional skills.

As teachers, business development advisors, gender equity champions and project managers, they have helped communities grow.

Let us take you through the decades to see the enormous impact volunteers have made, and how their experiences have affected change in Canada.

Examples of Canadians Making an Impact

1960s: The idea for Cuso International was first conceived in the 1960s by 25-year-old Keith Spicer, a student at the time who went on to become an important figure in our country’s history around issues of media and unity.

1980s: A volunteer placed in Nigeria, Nora Murdock says the experience was life changing for her; she dedicated her career to shaping education in First Nations communities in Canada.

2000s: After a volunteer placement in Kenya, Richelle Matthews continued to work in developing communities in Bangladesh and Sub Saharan Africa. Just recently she was one of six teams selected to compete for a million dollar prize that would go toward helping refugees in West Africa.
