Volunteer beyond the classroom.

Me to We logo

Langara International Service Trip (LIST) takes students beyond the classroom, and beyond Canada, to volunteer in our global community. The program focuses on local & global cultural awareness, sustainability, and service.

Langara College is proud to be the first Canadian College to partner with ME to WE Trips.

How to get on the LIST.

Students will need to complete an application to be considered for the LIST program. As part of the application, students submit a letter of intent, their resumé, and a letter of support. There are only 12 spots available so entry is competitive. 

The deadline to apply has been extended to Monday, June 10 to accommodate high demand and allow students more time to gather their application materials.

  • Airfare (both ways)
  • Accomodation
  • Travel
  • 3 meals a day + water
  • Cultural, service, and wildlife-viewing programming (eg, build site activities, safari day, elephant orphanage, beading with Maasai Mamas and more)
