Explore the skill-based TeleBrigade program areas below.
Volunteer Program Types
Build medical knowledge through skill-based volunteering, gain cultural competency, 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 program incorporates mobile medical clinics, interviews with physicians, medical Spanish, an introduction to pharmacology, and exposure to unique case studies.
Apply business skills, foster cultural competency, and with local teams and mentors from Deloitte or Accenture, create consulting deliverables to support clients in under-resourced communities.
Use virtual meeting software to support our on-the-ground economic development team. This program incorporates live consultations, consulting deliverables, and the opportunity for affordable loan capital to help clients execute their business plans.
Each Engineering TeleBrigade is a live case study of challenges that prevent access to potable water. Our bilingual on-the-ground teams guide volunteers to ultimately design a full-scale community-wide water system.
The program does not stop at design. Participants budget the water system so local teams and communities can work together to secure funding for construction. A portion of the funds of each volunteer’s donation goes toward matching funds to help achieve this.
Public Health TeleBrigades
Volunteer with our bilingual on-the-ground teams to prevent disease and improve health outcomes. Participants help identify health challenges, assess market demand for in-home infrastructure solutions.
With a health action plan in hand, the local committee of community leaders implement the plan and share progress with the volunteers after 6-8 weeks of implementation. Experience learning outcomes of global public health and make a direct community impact.
