3 Week Catalyzer

 3 Weeks, 2 Ventures, 1  Transformational Experience 

 
Collaborate with your Ugandan peers, who are running 2 social ventures. Use your natural skills to catalyze an element of their strategic planning. All the while, you’ll be enjoying discovering the real Uganda and learning about creating social change in new cultures. Then continue the experience from home – continuing to remotely volunteer over the internet. 

The Timetable

3 Action Packed Weeks

For 2019, we’re offering 3 trips: 

27th June – 18th July

1st – 22nd August

29th August – 19th September

In Uganda

Post-Travel

One of the coolest things about a United exchange is that the volunteering isn’t just in Uganda. In fact, you can continue to volunteer on a venture for years later, even becoming a member of the board.
We hope that all volunteers will commit to remotely volunteering for at least 6 months after their trip. However, what this will entail depends a lot upon the relationship with the venture, its needs, and your time to give.

Pre-Travel

After submitting your form below we’ll be in contact to arrange an informal Skype interview. Upon acceptance to the exchange program, the next steps are:
  1. Sign a Volunteer’s Agreement & Pay the Deposit (£175 / $275)
  2. Arrange Vaccinations, Book Flights, & Get Travel Insurance
  3. Apply for a Ugandan Visa Online
  4. Participate in 3 Pre-Departure Training Calls
  5. Make Final Payment (£400 / $500) by 1st June
  6. Have an Introductory Call with 2 Ventures
  7. Travel!

We require volunteers to fundraise for trips to cover the costs of running them. We are a charity, not a commercial company making profits from volunteers.
