Assist in providing community and medical services to those in need while gaining global health experience and immersing yourself in a new culture!
ISL teams serve in many of the communities that struggle with economic and ethnic tensions as well as access to healthcare. While our programs mostly operate in the Dominican Republic, we do take visits to the Dominican/Haitian border to serve residents of the refugee communities in the border zone. This is often one of the most impactful experiences that our volunteers have.

- ISL has over 20 years of experience providing volunteers opportunities in 12 different countries
- Our programs are always coordinated by our in-country employees, who are locals and know the area and culture well
- We work under the direction of the local government Ministries of Health, and students are only involved to the extent that these officials approve
- We treat acute conditions only and maintain contact with, and in most cases, re-visit work sites again and again to ensure a lasting relationship
Our minimum age requirement for our volunteer programs is 14. If you are between 14 and 18 we do offer specially designed High School programs to fit your needs. Any volunteers 18 or older may participate in any of our programs.
