*Note: United Planet maintains the same quality standards in the United States for our various healthcare projects. Please note that while we accept volunteers of all experience levels at most of our Global Health projects, volunteers with more experience and proper certification will be able to assist with more involved procedures, while volunteers with less experience will gain important global perspectives on healthcare practices in different cultures by interacting with and observing doctors and nurses.
United Planet Quests are designed to be immersive, authentic, comprehensive and provide you everything you’ll need to succeed. The program elements allow you to engage fully with a new culture, forge strong relationships, and challenge yourself. Most importantly, we partner with the community to ensure your experience will be important, relevant and helpful to the community you serve.
Students or professionals can construct a personalized volunteer experience based on interests and expertise. Past groups include nursing students, dental offices, art therapy students and professionals, and more. Locations are flexible based on interest.
Volunteers have the opportunity to teach at a Cancer Institute in Tanzania or those with Spanish language skills can work in a clinic setting to assist local staff while spending time with and encouraging patients.
