Global Brigades – Last Chance to Apply for Summer 2021 Brigades!

U of T Global Brigades is excited to reopen applications for our Summer 2021 Brigades!
Application deadline: Friday, January 15

Global Brigades is a student-led movement in social responsibility. Through a holistic approach, we seek to reduce health and economic disparities in Central American communities, and empower them to rise out of poverty. Our Engineering Brigade from June 16-24, 2021 will design and build a clean water distribution system in rural Honduras.

Volunteers will collaborate with community leaders and local experts to accomplish:

  • Community water assessment
  • Mapping, surveying, and design of water system
  • Budgeting and cost recovery strategy
  • Presentation to community leaders
  • Construction of a previously designed water system

Our ultimate goal is to reduce the occurrence of water-borne diseases, which leads the way to improved community health and economic growth.

The Engineering Brigade is a great chance to practice engineering skills and learn about sustainable development, while working to support the human right to clean water!
