Volunteers are central to the work of the CAP Network both in Canada and in partner communities in Africa! Our volunteers across Canada help organize local events, champion the cause and raise funds for community work in Africa. Meanwhile, our volunteer mentors in Africa build capacity, network with other organizations, access funding sources and implement our joint projects.
Please find international internships and Canadian volunteer opportunities listed below:
We are currently recruiting two interns to work with our partner CAPAIDS-Uganda beginning in August 2016. These positions are through the International Youth Internship Program funded by Global Affairs Canada and administered through the Interagency Coalition on AIDS and Development. The internships will run for six months and will entail working with a variety of community projects in Uganda as well as the opportunity to visit with other CAP Network partners in the region. See here for details and how to apply!
