Greetings College of Engineering  Students!

My name is David Ramos with International Student Volunteers (ISV) which is a non-profit that organizes life-changing volunteer abroad programs for university students. This summer, we have 4-week programs in 6 countries–Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, and Thailand. I was hoping you could forward the following message to your students!

During the first two weeks, our students do 80 hours of volunteer work in either Social Community Development–doing basic health care and pre-med projects, building schools and houses, and working on educational programs for children– or in Conservation–where they can work in rainforest regeneration or endangered species management with elephants, dolphins, cheetahs or sea turtles!

During the second two weeks, students will travel all throughout their host country, getting immersed into the culture and exploring its natural wonders. They will also get to do exciting adventure activities like white water rafting, zip lining, surfing, cave kayaking, going on wildlife safaris and WAY more!

This program is a wonderful way to get out of the classroom and have some hands-on educational experiences—throughout the 4 weeks, students will be learning all about the communities, ecosystems, and animals with which they are interacting! Furthermore, it gives students an opportunity to do something meaningful with their summer while exploring another culture and country.

We will be having information meetings about these programs this THURSDAY, October 1st, from 9am-5pm in the Joe, Room 422, starting every hour on the hour. If students can’t attend the information meeting, they can email me to get more information.
