We interviewed Hannah who has volunteered abroad with ILP in Russia, Ukraine, China, Thailand and Romania and is currently in the Dominican Republic! She shared with us a few of the ways ILP has changed her life and why she is glad she has spent so many semesters abroad with ILP!
Did you know you can go abroad with International Language Programs (ILP!) more than once and it's even more affordable than your first trip? When volunteering as a Head Teacher your program fee is completely covered by ILP for most locations AND you get a stipend of spending money to take on your trip. Sounds awesome right? It is! Keep reading to learn how to get this deal.
One of the most unique things about volunteering with ILP is that you get to spend an entire semester abroad. A full semester really is amazing but it may seem like a long time at first. Here are some reasons why you'll love having a full semester to volunteer instead of just a week or two and while you'll be so thankful you did!
People who like to travel are cool, but people who travel with ILP are even cooler — here’s what a few of our alumni have been up to.
While volunteering with International Language Programs (ILP) you will meet and serve alongside amazing people in your group. They are from all over the US and have different religious backgrounds, ideas and views. Each of them will teach you something that will help you grow as a person.
It can be hard to decide whether or not you'll spend a semester abroad. There is so much good and so many amazing opportunities you'll find as you volunteer, but there is also a lot of unknowns and it's a big commitment which can make it hard to decide if and when it's right for you!
Wait...I can get unlimited data and texting for the time I'm living abroad through ILP? Yes. Yes, you can.
Yes! We love when friends decide to do this experience together. And depending on what country you are thinking of traveling to, you both could save some serious money by applying together.
Sometimes it feels like the only thing standing in the way between you and a semester abroad is money. International Language Programs (ILP!) is really affordable when you look at everything that is covered, but even then it can be hard to pull everything together and pay at once.
