Oxfam America is accepting applications for its 14th annual CHANGE Initiative, its national student organizing and advocacy program. CHANGE offers rising sophomores and juniors at US-based colleges the opportunity to become effective agents for social change.
CHANGE Leaders: • Have access to expert skills based training, resources, materials and year-round support from Oxfam staff; • Establish connections and share knowledge with college students from the US and beyond; • Develop confidence and lifelong skills to create positive, lasting social change, and • Are part of an active and growing, global network of peers and alumni working on justice issues.
Applications are due on April 1, 2013. Accepted students participate in a week-long training in Boston from July 20-26, 2013, which is organized and paid for by Oxfam. Students must agree to join or form an Oxfam Club and implement an Oxfam campaign on campus during the 2013-14 academic year, as well as communicate regularly with Oxfam staff about their work.
