Participate in a unique opportunity to volunteer side-by-side with Cubans.
1993, hundreds of people living across Canada, of various ages, skills
and backgrounds have enjoyed an exciting and informative two-week
stay in Cuba with the Ernesto Che Guevara Volunteer Work Brigade.
The trip provides the opportunity to look at the gains and victories of
the Cuban revolution, as well as see Cuba's challenges first hand,
particularly the impacts of over 50 years of illegal economic blockade
from the United States. The Che Brigade fulfills two main goals. On the
one hand, it is a great way to show support for the struggle of the
Cuban people to maintain their independence. On the other hand, it is
an important opportunity for people from Canada to know and understand
the dynamism of all aspects of life in Cuba.
The Cuban people, who are committed to maintaining their revolution and
its great gains, receive the Brigade participants, known as
"Brigadistas", with warmth and friendship. The fact that Brigadistas
come from Canada to share friendship, reaffirms to many Cuban people
that the social change they are carrying out is important, not only for
their country, but for the entire world.
The Che Brigade combines volunteer work with cultural, social, economic
and political encounters in an educational context.
This is a unique chance for people from Canada to support Cuba with your friendship and by
volunteering on a farm alongside members of youth and women's organizations as well as veterans of the Cuban Revolution. We will customize volunteer work to accommodate all abilities and preferences. We hope you will join us for the 2021 Che Brigade!
Every year the Che Brigade includes:
Working with Cubans
Talks on Cuban economy, democratic system, and health
Visits to places of interest (schools, hospitals, factories, museums,
Opportunity to explore the host city as well as Havana independently
