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.
