So. You’re all set to send in your application to go volunteering with ILP and even have your country picked out … then find out you’re on the wait list. What does that even mean?

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?
ILP is excited to expand into a new part of the world and offer you two new countries with service opportunities and, of course — tons of adventure! You can now participate in service trips to Central America.
One of the most challenging parts of volunteering abroad with ILP is lesson planning. The actual lesson planning part is super easy, but finding those good ideas that are going to translate into super fun classes can be the challenge. We get asked where to find ideas all the time, so we compiled a list of the best ways to find them!
We know the most stressful week as an ILP volunteer is the one you leave, so here is some details of what to expect!
We want to answer all your questions and help you get a feel for what a semester volunteering abroad with International Language Programs (ILP) will be like. We have a bunch of resources to help you with that. Representatives in the office, the ILP website, ILP blogs and Information Meetings are some great ways to learn more and ask questions. Soo, what is an info meeting and how do you find them?

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!
