Humanitarian Programs

Make a difference in multiple ways in Uganda: Help kindergarteners learn English and join in on other service projects like helping build wells to provide clean water to the community. Don’t forget to explore this beautiful country though! Spot giraffes, zebras, and hippos on a safari, go white water rafting on the Nile, and repel off waterfalls.

There’s plenty of adventure to be had here! Zip line through the rainforest, hike to a volcano, spot a sloth hanging out up in the trees, and practice your Spanish while you spend a semester in this welcoming country.

Spend a semester living in a local neighborhood and seeing the authentic side of this touristic island! Spend vacations snorkeling in Caribbean waters, riding bikes through Spanish influenced cities, and swimming through waterfall pools.

Get the unique experience of living in an orphanage where the kids you teach become like family. Your days consist of neighborhood soccer games, Saturday trips to the coast with the kids, and treks through your backyard to find fresh coconuts to drink.

If ever there was a hidden gem … it’s Nicaragua! This country is bursting full of colorful cities, swimmable lakes and coastlines, hikes through the rain forest, and so much more. The best part is you get it all minus the crowds and higher prices of countries nearby. Teach students who come from limited means and are so excited to have you here.

Knock off two major bucket-list dreams when you spend a semester living in and backpacking around Europe plus also making a difference by serving in an orphanage. This is ILP’s only program where instead of teaching English, you’ll be giving one-on-one love and support to children who you help as they progress and grow.
