About Program

Omprakash facilitates beneficial & educational relationships between social grassroots organizations and interns who wish to volunteer in Europe. As a volunteer, Omprakash will assist you in connecting directly with our network of 200+ vetted Partner organizations working in 50+ countries on a wide range of projects.

Our award-winning online training and mentorship program, Widening Circles EdGE (Education through Global Engagement), is designed to increase learning, critical reflection, and overall impact before, during, and after volunteers' international experiences. While you don't need to participate in the Widening Circles EdGE program to find a volunteer position through our network, we highly recommend volunteers participate to gain mentorship, training, support, and more throughout their volunteering or Gap Year journey.

Omprakash

Future participants should know about EdGE. It's the most beneficial component of Omprakash. The course is what makes your experience abroad more real. The course makes you aware of your surroundings, your limitations, and opens you up to learn. if you are looking for a experience that wont just happen and then fade away, then going through Omprakash would be the best way to keep learning and growing after traveling abroad. My favorite part beyond everything else was the people I met, some of who I am still very close with.
