Maybe you’re kind of interested in traveling and volunteering with ILP, but not totally sure. Should you still apply? Yep! Here’s why:
Trips abroad can be expensive (but worth it), but why make it more expensive than it needs to be? Some banks, credit unions and credit cards offer ATM cards that don't have any international fees and some charge CRAZY fees just to access your cash (which would you rather have, right?)
Sending your child on a semester abroad can be a bit nerve-wracking; our program directors understand because they've been in your shoes when their daughters volunteered! You probably want to be able to talk to them regularly, so here are few easy ways you can keep in touch while they are volunteering for a semester with ILP.
As a parent, sending your daughter or son to volunteer with ILP is a leap of faith. Not being able to see them every day and make sure they are safe is a worry many parents experience, but there are ways you can see where they are at all times, even while they are in another country?
You already know that ILP is a pretty rad non-profit organization, right? (Well now, you do) … but who is who when it comes to the people behind ILP?
We know you love new countries! And we love it too — ILP has programs in countries all over the world and are always looking to continue growing. But how does that work, exactly?
Maybe you’ve heard a little bit about the ILP Program and it sounds great … but you’re not exactly sure what is actually means to volunteer abroad with us — and that’s okay. We’ve put together some more info on what you might be worried about so you can know what it takes.
If you didn’t know, ILP has two programs: Exchange and Humanitarian. While they do have some similarities (both programs let you give back and make a difference!) there are some differences that can help you figure out what country and what program is going to be the best choice for you.
Are you wanting to make a difference, travel the world, grow personally or just start a new adventure? You've probably looked around at a few study abroad programs or humanitarian programs and gotten a bit discouraged when you realized how expensive they can be ... but not ILP!
