The annual Ernesto Che Guevara Volunteer Work Brigade was established in 1993 to exchange political and cultural ideas with Cuba in the spirit of solidarity and respect. The Ernesto Che Guevara Volunteer Work Brigades itinerary includes 5 days of volunteer work on a farm alongside Cubans from women's and youth organizations as well as veterans of the Cuban Revolution. While this work is physical, the pace is not strenuous and can be customized to suit all abilities and preferences. In the past Brigadistas have ranged in age, from 7-86! The morning is our main work time, where Brigadistas work alongside Cubans sharing, learning, and having an important exchange. The rest of the day is for meetings with various groups and organizations, workshops, concerts, dance lessons, or just visit the beach and explore on your own for free time. English translation is provided for all activities and throughout the duration of the trip.

The Che Brigade is a project of the Canadian Network on Cuba and hosted by the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP).
