Non-profit work

“Development, for me, is all about improving the lives of people," says Noah Snell, alumn, global development studies minor.

"As a staff member and volunteer with three NGOs in Canada, UVic’s global development minor helped me re-think the way we partner with communities and how our impact is measured and evaluated. I appreciated that the minor offered a mix of practical and theory-based knowledge which often centered the experience of those receiving development assistance. The GDS program would be a great fit for anyone considering work in the non-profit or public sector.”
