Panama is a place of incredible geographic diversity! The vast rainforests are home to some of the world's most exotic wildlife, while the beaches are perfect for laying in the sun.
Panama contains a rich array of cultures ranging from indigenous and Latino to peoples of African, Asian, and European descent. ISL offers a wide variety of programming to the region, including veterinary, dental, optometry, nursing, and interdisciplinary global health opportunities. Teams usually consist of 6-14 volunteers and are accompanied by ISL staff and licensed health professionals.
Panama is also one of two countries ISL serves in that can offer a Hike for Humanity Team! ISL’s Hike for Humanity program offers a unique adventure, sending volunteer teams to assist those in greatest need by reaching out to villages farthest from urban advantages. This unique fusion of service-learning and adventure is one of the many programs that you can participate in.
