Connect with communities abroad and observe real-world issues and the social initiatives created to solve them.
ISA Service-Learning programs provide a unique opportunity to learn from community leaders, experts and professionals serving their own communities. Through a guided, reflection-based curriculum, we will help you think critically about community development and civic engagement in a local and global context.
Over the last two decades, we have developed partnerships with over 100 non-governmental organizations (NGOs), nonprofits, and governmental organizations worldwide that have ongoing projects to which you can volunteer your time and contribute your strengths.
Through our diverse program offerings, you get to decide where and when your global learning experience will begin.
My experience in service-learning abroad changed my entire perspective on healthcare. I have a better understanding of intersectionality regarding underserved communities and their mental health, along with the external circumstances affecting them. Now, I feel better prepared to enter into career settings, as I feel that my distinct worldview has become an asset.

This unique opportunity allowed me to directly participate in the host community. I was able to interact with locals while also gaining skills that I can apply to my future career. There is a service learning opportunity for everyone regardless of their interests and passions.
