Summer Abroad Benefits
By joining one of our summer volunteer programs, you will not only provide aid and community service to your chosen community, you will also help nuture a developing economy. As an open and modern volunteer organization, we create local employment wherever we send volunteers. In fact, employing local staff overseas and using their talents and knowledge is vital to our success. Local knowledge and support enable us to channel the skills of our volunteers and interns to regions around the world where they are needed. Volunteers learn from their summer placements and the people they meet while gaining experience in a chosen field. In the age of the global economy, we believe this mutual respect is what cultural exchange is all about.
