Teachers: Join our movement!
Lead your students to implement real-world global health programs.
Global Health Squads
Volunteers facilitate mobile health clinics for children in partner communities while conducting educational workshops and building sanitation projects in their schools.
LEARN HOW TO GET INVOLVED
Building Cultural Competence
Global Health Squads travel abroad to learn directly from our local health care professionals about the community’s challenges of healthcare access and have the opportunity to visit existing health facilities for more context. Each program involves mobile healthcare screenings, impact projects, and cultural immersion activities.
Global Health TeleSquads are designed for aspiring health students to build medical knowledge through skill-based volunteering, build cultural competency through virtual immersion, and deliver real impact through our local team by participating in live clinics.
Health Projects Include
Mobile Medical Clinics
Hand Washing Stations
Build hand washing stations and educational murals around public health and water curriculum.
Create vegetable gardens and paint educational murals connecting nutrition education and awareness.
Dental + Vision Clinic
Provide dental and vision clinics with educational murals, materials, and donated supplies.

Where We Work
ABOUT HEALTH SQUADS
Global Health Squads work to improve health care access and sanitation infrastructure to improve health outcomes in partner communities. Programs can range between 1-2 weeks and include enrichment activities that build cultural competence inspired by the local population.
Each volunteer has an individual donation goal depending on the country to help cover logistical expenses such as transport, local staff, meals, insurance, accommodations and the year-round follow-up of their program by our teams. Additionally, each group fundraises $1500 as a team to go toward the costs of the sanitation project for the school and clinic materials.
Each Squad needs a minimum of 6 volunteers and one faculty leader. Leaders participate without a donation goal.
