With employers in over 60 countries, Waterloo co-op students travel far and wide in search of experiences that will broaden their horizons and further their careers. But beyond their own professional development, many of our students who choose to go abroad are also motivated by the desire to make a difference by supporting the development of communities across the globe.
Through their co-op work terms, Waterloo students are helping to support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in various sectors around the world. Check out the inspiring stories below for a look at how our students' work has helped to alleviate global issues such as inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, education and poverty, to name a few!
