Explore new lands and vibrant cultures.
We are passionate about providing a conduit for our volunteers to travel and explore a new part of the world while providing sustainable service in our partner communities. We offer trips to 11 countries on three different continents.
Assist with providing health services in developing communities.
Every year, we provide thousands of people with quality medical services in developing communities. Our teams of students and professionals reach into places that, without ISL, may not have access to any medical care. And it’s not just the patients whose lives are changed.
Make a difference. Change your life.
Whether it’s learning about the people and culture of the country you are visiting, or discovering who you are in an unfamiliar setting, ISL firmly believes that true learning cannot be confined to a classroom.

We are passionate about providing a conduit for our volunteers to explore and travel a new part of the world while providing sustainable good to the communities we serve.
We hold with the utmost conviction that for volunteers to be successful they need to learn from professionals within the country that they serve. We believe in the power of the individual that chooses to serve and make a difference in the lives of others.
ISL is made up of driven, empathetic, and ambitious individuals who seek to make volunteering abroad an accessible opportunity for everyone who wants it.

In my time spent documenting health clinics in the villages outside the city perimeters of Managua, Nicaragua, I learned one very important thing. I learned about the power of education.
