Unite For Sight's Global Health Volunteer Abroad Opportunities

Which program is right for you?

The 1-week Ghana Program offers the same type of immersive global health experience as the Global Impact Corps Program. However, the short 1-week Ghana Program offers open enrollment (no formal application), and requires brief online orientation instead of the Global Impact Corps' online global health training requirement. Global Impact Corps participants receive a Certificate in Global Health & Program Delivery.
