Oxfam at a glance: On campus
Whether they’re gaining leadership skills through the CHANGE Initiative or joining Oxfam Clubs at schools nationwide, thousands of students are teaming up with Oxfam to fight poverty, hunger, and injustice.
In 1974, Oxfam America launched its first grassroots anti-hunger campaign. Among those who joined the effort were high school and university students, whose dedication and optimism attracted others to the cause.
Nearly four decades later, students still number among Oxfam’s most committed supporters, organizing events and building networks on campus and beyond. Today’s student volunteers usually work with Oxfam in one of two ways: as participants in our national leadership program, the CHANGE Initiative, or as members of Oxfam Clubs on campuses around the country.
