Every SOS Outreach Trip is supported by two (2) Trip Leaders! One is the NGO Trip Leader, an employee from our local partnering organization (more here) and one is the SOS Trip Leader, a student from the travel group who has volunteered to take on a leadership role.


This application is for the SOS Trip Leader!

This person is the point of contact between our partnering community and our partnering organization, and the volunteer group. They will lead the group through the airport, through the new experiences in your host community, and through the emotional roller coaster once home.

If you have:

  • Proven leadership experience;
  • International or domestic travel experience;
  • Exceptional organizational skills;
  • A longing to better understand Canadian charities and the not-for-profit sector;
  • A caring and nurturing personality;
  • and a willingness to go above and beyond for your partnering community…

…then this position is for you. The ability to speak Spanish is NOT required and stipends are available for Trip Leaders (up to $200.00).
