Immerse yourself in the big-hearted culture of this mighty island nation of The Philippines. The Philippines are home to more than 100 million people who are divided between 7,000+ islands. The Malay people, who are native to the Philippines, are known for their welcoming sense of camaraderie and kinship. Both Spanish and Chinese influences are strong as well, cultivating an island tradition like none other. You can expect to feel unbound by the constraints of time as the locals relax and celebrate. Join the fun, experience delectable fare and learn a few words of Tagalog while you're at it!

As a volunteer in the Philippines, you will be hosted by SPARK, ICYE's partner organization here. SPARK's founders pool decades of experience in children and youth outreach programs and community development. They connect volunteers to a wide variety of local needs, making your time in this beautiful country both exciting and meaningful.

Possible volunteer projects include:
- Assisting with organizing and running various activities for a children’s library
- Working on varied administrative tasks and field work activities for an organization that advocates for housing security and rights for the urban poor
