about our programs

Impacto Global Squads volunteer in partner schools abroad to provide much needed infrastructure projects and educational campaigns. These custom group volunteer travel programs range between 7-10 days and include enrichment activities that build cultural competence inspired by the local population.  Each Squad needs a minimum of 8 volunteers and one faculty leader. We provide 2 full scholarships for adult faculty leaders.

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 a $1500 Group Project Donation that goes toward the costs of the infrastructure project for the school that students complete on their program.

Squads are passionate groups of volunteers who mobilize abroad to create positive change. Each Squad type has a skill-based focus area that support the education, health and economic development objectives of community partners. Faculty choose their dates, duration (typically 1-2 weeks), and their site location from one of our six program countries.
