If you're currently a student at Utah Valley University, you could easily fit a semester volunteering abroad in. International Language Programs (that's us!) has UVU students applying to volunteer every semester and here's how they make it work.
Having a great backpack to stow your stuff in while exploring different countries is a must! Check out what backpacks our ILP volunteers recommend as you make plans to travel across Europe, explore Thailand, or adventure wherever your semester abroad takes you!
Getting ready to start up a Facebook fundraiser to help you afford your semester volunteering abroad with ILP? Awesome! Here's some tips first.
Do you get a data plan? Can you travel without one? Not a huge fan of coming home to hundreds of dollars of data charges? If you’ll be traveling abroad with your phone, you need this info.
If you're headed to volunteer in tropical place, you're going to need a swimsuit no matter what time of year it is.
You're climbing the Great Wall of China or visiting the Louvre in Paris when you feel a massive headache coming on. Luckily for you, someone in your ILP group packed some Tylenol and has it in their bag (well, hopefully).
Besides the construction paper and glue sticks in your suitcase, you should also be packing stuff to wear on vacations and in the classroom, right?
