Dates of existence
CUSO International was established in 1961 by a group of Canadian University graduates. These graduates gathered together hundreds of other resent graduates and founded the CUSO, Canadian University Services Overseas. The graduates volunteered as teachers, nurses and agriculturists in developing countries.
Over the following decades the role of the volunteers expanded. Today's CUSO volunteers are professionals focussed on providing skills and knowledge to partners in Africa, Southeast Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean and Northern Canada.
