Description

Village Volunteers is a 501c3 non-profit organization based in Seattle that helps students find meaningful volunteer or internship opportunities with one of our partner organizations in Kenya, Ghana, India or Nepal. We work closely with each student to provide a placement matches their academic and professional goals. Our partner NGOs are lead by talented and inspirational community leaders who are making a difference at the grassroots level and we invite international volunteers to join them in finding sustainable solutions to community challenges. 

Public Health Students:

Employ public health education through working with schools and women's groups educating on clean water, HIV/AIDS prevention, Nutrition, Malaria, First Aid, Sickle Cell Anemia and more. 

Nursing Students: 

Work in a clinic and hospital with a small nursing school in rural Kenya. Several clinic and community placements available. 

Pre-med - Medical Students: 

Work in a clinical setting where volunteers have the opportunity to work at a clinic and hospital. Shadow and support a local medical team to treat and diagnose patients on a day-to-day basis and go with them on mobile clinics. Opportunities for clinical rotations for advanced students and close supervision to pre-med students. 

Short or long term volunteer opportunities are available year round to be customized to your individual schedule. 

We provide comprehensive preparation that includes an understanding of the culture and all considerations necessary for travel. The Village Volunteers program is true immersion done safely and responsibly. 

Students will have a tailored internship or volunteer opportunity that will meet their goals and academic requirements. We provide ongoing support before and after a student's internship or volunteer service.
