The UF chapter of Children Beyond Our Borders (CBOB) was founded in 2003 and since then has grown and laid the framework for the nonprofit organization CBOB, established in 2007. Throughout each school year, the members of the UF chapter of CBOB raise awareness on campus and throughout Gainesville regarding child poverty, social injustice, and internal displacement. Members also fundraise for special projects and help organize CBOB’s annual service trips to Colombia.
We encourage any student interested in areas relating to social justice including peace initiatives, youth empowerment, community service, youth education, Latin American studies, sustainability studies, family and social wellness, science and technology, public relations, nonprofit management, or any other field related to CBOB’s mission to come to a chapter meeting and find out how to get more involved!
