Global Brigades 7-9 Day Health and Economic Development Programs

Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.


Global Brigades volunteers will have the opportunity to spend a week working alongside our local staff and community members on a health or sustainable development project. Volunteers can choose to participate in any one of the following brigade programs:

+ MEDICAL - run a mobile medical clinic alongside health care professionals

+ PUBLIC HEALTH - construct in-home infrastructure projects to promote healthy households

+ WATER - give a community access to potable water by constructing a clean water system

+ BUSINESS - consult businesses in rural communities on how to improve their practices

+ HUMAN RIGHTS - give community members access to legal counsel and pro-bono services

Global Brigades volunteers will spend a week in Central America or West Africa, contributing to our year-round health and economic development projects. By participating in a Global Brigades programming, volunteers are contributing to large-scale development projects that go far beyond the impact one volunteer can make in a week. Join a brigade to be part of something big!
