Getting ready to travel abroad with us this summer? We want to make sure that our volunteers feel as prepared as possible so they are comfortable taking that leap of faith and enrolling in an exciting and life-changing volunteer trip! Check out some of our most frequently asked questions and some first-hand experiences from our wonderful volunteers.
We can’t wait for you to join us soon as part of one of our many volunteer opportunities, including our Summer International Health Fellowship (SIHF). Slots are still available for both summer sessions, sign up today or email firstname.lastname@example.org any time to learn more or ask us anything!
FIMRC Chapters help raise awareness about global health and provide amazing opportunities for volunteers to travel and serve. Traveling as a group can be a life-changing experience for our volunteers and for the communities we serve, and we are proud to offer scholarships to help even more volunteers travel abroad to serve with us. Some of our recent chapter groups received a scholarship award donated by a unique FIMRC leader & alum, John Park from Texas Tech.
Each volunteer’s reason for choosing Project Anconcito and their experiences on site are as unique as the volunteers themselves. Meet three special volunteers who served with us in Ecuador in 2018. Makda Mehari, a junior at Centre College, who served for five weeks as part of the Lincoln Scholars program at Centre College; Catie O’Reilly, a junior at Vanderbilt University and part of the Ingram Scholars program; and Kathleen Hopps, a high school student from Illinois.
