Oxfam America CHANGE 2012 Initiative

CHANGE is Oxfam’s national student leadership program for rising sophomores and juniors. It provides leadership and advocacy training and prepares students to promote social change locally and globally. CHANGE Leaders are exposed to the international development issues that inform Oxfam’s work, and apply their skills and creativity to run Oxfam campaigns on campus.

Applications are due April 2, 2012. Selected students participate in a week-long training in Boston, July 21-27, 2012, which is organized and paid for by Oxfam. Students must agree to work with a student club and implement an Oxfam campaign on campus during the 2012-13 academic year, as well as communicate regularly with Oxfam staff about their work. Each year 50 students are selected from US-based colleges and universities across the U.S. To learn more about the CHANGE Initiative, visit www.oxfamamerica.org/change. If you have questions about CHANGE, or want to request materials to promote this opportunity, please be in touch.
