Curious about what a semester abroad in Africa would be like? Bryn's here to spill the beans and answer your questions!

Just because you’re not interested in teaching English doesn’t mean you can’t volunteer with ILP. We actually have a program where you won’t be teaching at all.
ILP has two main volunteer programs: Exchange and Humanitarian (plus a Hybrid program that combines elements from both) — but all the country choices can make it tough when you are trying to choose which program is the best fit.
“Having even a small part to play in building a spring for this Ugandan village really made me think about what I take for granted.”
With a charming German influence, towering cathedrals, and city streets fit for a postcard, you can see why Sibiu is a favorite little getaway for our volunteers in Romania!
The humanitarian program in Romania is unique because you will be working in an orphanage with children who may have physical or mental disabilities — it's extremely rewarding, but don't take our word for it.
*Because of the worldwide pandemic, travel options are limited and frequently changing. You'll need to do additional research as resources + activities shared in this post may or may not be available at the time of your trip.
ILP volunteers — work closely with your Program Manager who can help you understand current country entrance requirements which will determine what countries you can visit during your semester.
