We are recruiting young volunteers

If you are a student or recent grad from an animal-health related discipline, we have an opportunity for you. VWB/VSF is recruiting its next group of young volunteers to work with our partners in Africa on range of animal health/public health challenges with global dimensions, such as emerging diseases, poverty reduction and the development of sustainable livelihoods. These are 12 week placements. VWB/VSF covers all expenses, but successful applicants will be expected to raise a portion of the money.

Applications must reach VWB/VSF’s Ottawa office before midnight on October 28. Click HERE for more information, read OUR BLOG to learn about the experiences of young volunteers in previous years, or download an application form HERE.  

We love our volunteers!

Our Volunteers are Making a Difference!

VWB/VSF's success in helping people overseas can be largely attributed to the skills and hard work of our volunteers.  We are so proud of their accomplishments and we would like to introduce you to a few of them. We have some new video profiles posted to our video library, and we are adding more all the time.  Click HERE to see for yourself!
