Have a question?
Let us know!
Can you tell me more about what I would be doing if I volunteered for a Global Education Squad?
I am interested in growing my professional skills as a student. How can Global Education Squads help me?
How is Global Education Squads different from other volunteer programs I’ve heard about?
Is there a minimum or maximum number of volunteers for groups?
Where do the funds I raise go?
Volunteers do not pay to participate with Squads Abroad. Instead, volunteers fundraise to support Squads Abroad’s Holistic Model. Once a volunteer meets a set Donation Goal, they are eligible to join us on-the-ground to see their fundraising efforts put into action by participating in a Global Education Squad.
When a volunteer participates in an Education Squad, the volunteer’s ground transportation, food, lodging, and emergency insurance are all covered. The funding that the volunteer raised also supports all the necessary costs for program implementation, such as equipment and supplies, translators, and support staff.
