Global Impact Volunteer Opportunity-Please Distribute

Seattle Community Colleges Global Impact Program

Affordable and sustainable service learning trips to Vietnam, Ghana and India in Summer 2013

Health care professionals, students and members of the community are invited to volunteer to travel and work around the world during Summer 2013 as participants in Global Impact, a Seattle Community Colleges service learning program presented in partnership with Seattle-area medical, education and service organizations.

Since 2005, local teams have paired with teams from host countries to provide medical and dental services. The teams also work on sustainable infrastructure projects such as the installation of clean-burning stoves, water filters and composting toilets that contribute to the overall health of rural communities.

Global Impact is sponsoring three programs this summer —

Vietnam Village Trek

(August 3 – August 13)

Medical trek and village development projects in the Mai Chau Highlands of Northern Vietnam

Ghana Encounter

(August 20 – September 3)

Healthcare and green/sustainable public health projects in rural villages near Cape Coast, Ghana.

Explore India

(August 20 – September 3)

Healthcare & basic infrastructure development to promote health in very poor communities in Goa.
