ORGANIZATION: International Language Programs

  • 33 people are interested
Volunteer abroad!
Make the most of your adventure by exploring with other volunteers in you group.

Help babies and children in an orphanage receive the love and care they need. What they lack is enough people who have time and patience to provide them with one-on-one interactions where they would learn simple things such as how to stand up, turn the pages in a picture book, or kick a ball. You have a tremendous ability to make a difference just by holding infants, sitting with bedridden children, and playing with these kids in a way that will encourage their growth and development.

International Language Programs (ILP) is a non-profit service organization based in Orem, Utah that sends 18-25 year old volunteers to help young children across the globe to have more opportunities in their future. Over 9,000 volunteers have served with ILP with numbers growing quickly.

At the orphanage in Romania volunteers live in a city to the north called Iasi.

Make a difference while you travel and have an unforgettable semester abroad with other volunteers!

Mission Statement

Description

International Language Programs (ILP) is a non-profit, volunteer service organization based in Provo, UT. ILP volunteers maintain high moral standards. Particular religious affiliation is not a requirement for participation but a commitment to live by the ILP Code of Conduct is. Since 1992 ILP has successfully taught English to children around the world. ILP provides nearly 400 volunteer and paid teachers each year for private and public schools worldwide. Approximately 7,500 children participate in our program in 16 schools in Russia, Taiwan, China, Ukraine, Mexico, and the U.S. With ILP children learn English in an environment of love and excitement. In approximately 500 hours of instruction (one school year) in an ILP beginning program, children become functionally fluent in English. After graduating from the beginning program, children continue to develop their comprehension and speaking skills. The second year is designed to help the students maintain their fluency while developing essential basic reading and writing skills. Following completion of that level, the Elementary program takes children to a higher level of fluency, achieving peer-level competency. Children study from textbooks and use curriculum currently used in American schools. The students learn to speak about subjects such as science, math, social studies, and literature. Having completed the follow-up program, children are able to learn with equal competency in classes taught in either English or their native language.
