Global Impact Corps: Global Health Volunteer Abroad Opportunities

Unite For Sight has been featured weekly on CNN International and in The New York Times

Unite For Sight is the world’s leader in socially responsible, effective volunteering abroad. Unite For Sight’s Global Impact Corps is an immersive global health experience for students and for professionals.  All volunteers participating in Unite For Sight’s international programs are Global Impact Fellows.  They participate daily with local ophthalmic nurses, local optometrists, and local ophthalmologists to support and assist the clinic in outreach programs that reduce all of the barriers to health care, including financial, transportation and education barriers.

Through hands-on, structured training, fellows gain a comprehensive understanding about best practices in volunteerism, global health, and international development.  Global Impact Fellows gain skills and are nurtured to become new leaders in global health.  Additionally, Global Impact Fellows may participate in the Global Impact Lab, an optional program for fellows interested in pursuing global health research.
