The C.A.R.E. SFU Global Travel Award Program has funded air travel for students volunteering abroad with not-for-profit organizations since 2010.

The award, distributed by C.A.R.E. Society, makes air travel possible with donated Asia Miles points for students working in civic engagement, international service learning, and humanitarian work. 855,000 air mile points were awarded in 2010 to SFU students volunteering for organizations located in countries such as Kenya, South Africa, Bolivia, and the Philippines. Past award recipients have worked for organizations such as Light & Love HomeAIPE, and the Council for Health and Development.

Tanya's Kinesiology Co-op: A Challenging Experience

My name is Tanya and I am majoring in Kinesiology – Active Health and Rehabilitation. I decided to join the Co-op program to gain hands-on experience and find out what type of work I would like to do once I have graduated. I began co-op in January of 2010 and finished the last of my co-op terms at the end of 2011, all in the area of physical rehabilitation. I wanted to address some of the challenges I have experienced during my time in co-op, and I hope to help other students who may be facing similar problems in their own work terms.
