Hayley Gendron in Costa Rica

Hayley has partnered with AIESEC to help raise awareness for the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and our Global Volunteer opportunities for young Canadians to combat issues they’re passionate about like climate change. She’ll be spending 6 weeks in January and February contributing to SDG #13 (Climate Action) by working in an indigenous community in Salitre. Hayley has traveled throughout Central and South America, working on other climate action initiatives and raising awareness of the environment. Follow her journey, get an insider’s peek at our volunteer projects, and learn more about being a Global Volunteer!

Hayley is a graduate of UBC in Vancouver, a social media influencer, environmental activist, and an adventure tour guide.
