For volunteers coming for focused one-week blocks or longer weekly commitments, CIDC offers one half day of orientation, including:

  • visiting the neighbourhoods where CIDC has projects;
  • discussion and orientation on working with vulnerable people;
  • discussion on cross cultural issues and some anti-oppression training;
  • briefing on specific assignments.

CIDC relies on you to bring your gifts and skills to the activity you will be doing. We can help with context and logistics but we look forward to learning from you!
