Invitation to participate in the Education In Action project in Guatemala

PSAC Social Justice Fund invites your members to participate in the next Education In Action project in Guatemala for two weeks, February 12 – 26, 2016.

Education In Action is supported by the PSAC Social Justice Fund to engage members and other Canadians to deepen their understanding of Guatemala and to build solidarity with Mayan communities in Guatemala.

The PSAC Social Justice Fund is offering a sponsorship to four Young Workers for the 2016 delegation. If you know of a young member who would benefit from this opportunity, please forward the attached application to them. More information is provided about the project in the attached invitation.

The Social Justice Fund will subsidize up to $2,500 for travel, food and accommodation. The subsidy does not cover loss of salary, however, the PSAC Prairie Region may provide additional subsidy for young workers selected from the Prairies.

In addition to the subsidies provided to four young workers, the project is open to all PSAC members, who are able to cover their own expenses (see application for details).

Space is limited and applications must be received by Monday, November 23, 2015.

In past years, Prairies participants have shared their experiences from this life changing experience. Take a look at the blogs, reports and photos from past social justice delegations:
