8 Jul 05 10 Jul 05 North South Orientation

Before applying for projects on the North South Programme, you need to attend a North South Orientation.  Potential volunteers are required to attend an orientation event, regardless of their experience, to ensure that all volunteers are sufficiently and safely prepared.  We also think it is important for potential volunteers to have an opportunity to meet both the people of UNA Exchange and returned North South volunteers. 

The orientation events outline the objectives of UNA Exchange and our partner organisations in the South and cover practicalities such as health, travel, money and personal safety.  Participants also have the opportunity to explore important themes concerning volunteering in the South, such as cultural awareness and development issues.   Perhaps the most important component of the weekends are the returned volunteer presentations which allow participants to hear the personal perspectives of volunteering on North South projects and discuss practical issues relevant to particular regions. 

To be sent an invitation to the orientation weekend, please download the North South Questionnaire using the link below.  You can then print, complete and return the questionnaire to us.  You can indicate which orientation event is most suitable on the questionnaire.  The questionnaire expresses your interest in the programme only and helps us to stucture the orientation events to meet you needs as closely as possible.

If you have any questions about the North South programme or the orientation weekend, please contact Xenia at [email protected].
