Volunteer Program Types

Medical
TeleBrigades

Global Medical TeleBrigades are designed for people who care about equitable access to healthcare and want to build medical knowledge through skill-based volunteering, build cultural competency through virtual immersion, and deliver real impact through our local team by participating in live medical clinics. 

TeleBrigades use virtual meeting software, secure tele-medical platforms, and the support of the on-the-ground healthcare professionals. This innovative program incorporates mobile medical clinics, interviews with physicians, medical Spanish, an introduction to pharmacology and exposure to unique epidemiologic case studies.

Business
TeleBrigades

Global Business TeleBrigades are designed for people who care about economic opportunities in under-resourced communities to apply their business skills, foster cultural competency through virtual immersion, and with the support of our local teams and mentors from Deloitte or Accenture, create consulting deliverables to help grow small business clients from under-resourced communities in the developing world.  

TeleBrigades use virtual meeting software and on-the-ground economic development professionals to facilitate meaningful experiences for both volunteers and our clients. This innovative program incorporates live consultations, tangible consulting deliverables, and the opportunity for affordable loan capital to help clients execute on their business plans.

Engineering TeleBrigades

Engineering TeleBrigades are designed for people who are passionate about access to clean water. This opportunity is an international collaboration to improve access to clean potable water in rural Honduran communities. Each TeleBrigade is a live case study of engineering challenges that prevent a community’s access to potable water.  Our bilingual on-the-ground teams guide volunteers to survey land, assess water sources, and ultimately design a full scale community-wide water system using the Epanet software.

The program does not stop at design. Participants go further to actually budget the water system so our local teams can support the community to secure local governments or grant funding for construction. A portion of the cost of each volunteer’s donation goal goes toward matching funds to help achieve this.
