Omprakash facilitates beneficial & educational relationships between social grassroots organizations and interns who wish to volunteer in Latin America. 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.
