Whether you completed your placement months ago or decades ago, you can stay involved with Cuso International - and help us tell your story.
Across Canada and the United States, returned volunteer alumni of Cuso International - and of CUSO and VSO Canada - are changing the way that their friends, neighbours and colleagues think about development.
Plan a global education project or help Cuso International recruit and support the next generation of volunteers.
Please make sure we can reach you.
We have lost touch with many of you who dedicated parts of your lives to creating a better world. We would love to hear from you so we can be in touch on a regular basis again. There have been many changes in development and we would like to help you open a dialogue with like-minded people.
To contact us, or if you are in communication with past volunteers who haven’t heard from us in a while, please send current contact info to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Returned volunteer alumni reintegration workshops
Newly returned? Get re-settled and enjoy a weekend with other RV alumni.
All alumni are invited to attend a reintegration workshop at Cuso International’s training center in Ottawa, usually scheduled 3–12 months after you return to North America from your placement. To find out about upcoming workshops contact us at email@example.com.
