Thank you for your interest in the HELP International Summer Program!
HELP International volunteers and interns are passionate and committed. Volunteers and interns travel abroad to fight poverty in Peru, Uganda, Thailand, and Nepal. Countries are subject to change. Volunteers work with partner organizations in-country on sustainable development projects. Projects may include teaching English, building a school, improving water sanitation, building gardens, teaching feminine hygiene, and much more.
