I've been part of the IPP team for seven months. From my experience, IPP has been being a dynamic, vibrant project to collaborate with. With a predominantly highly skilled and multicultural environment of a vast number of people geographically from all around the world, it has been being a very interesting and intellectually stimulating experience.

I have volunteered at this organization for over three years now. Its mission is a novel concept and I talk weekly with creative, innovative people. I have had lots of support and am leading a large project here now. The founder, Ron Krate, is skilled at cutting through red tape to make exciting things happen. The flexibility to work according to your own schedule and grow in a direction of your choosing is unusual. It's the reason I stay year after year.

I have been working with International Professors Project since September 2015. This is my first volunteering experience and I am very much satisfied by the way this organization works. It is flexible and gives us complete freedom to implement our ideas. My role initially was HR recruiter and now I have grew up to the role of HR specialist taking control on all the end- t0-end activities in HR. Also, the learning curve is excellent here as you tend to face all sorts of critical situations and you rise up to solving them as team. This is the best company to volunteer for. Kudos team IPP !

Several months ago, a woman phone interviewed me for the volunteer opportunity. I never received a response back. Despite that, the interviewer seemed rude, picky, and pretentious. I am very humble, I have volunteered with numerous organizations, and I am well educated. I have a Master's, credential, as well as many many continuing education courses. I also work in the higher education field. So if I did not meet up to their standards, I am happy they did not call back, I would not have been a good fit anyhow! They should hire someone if they are looking for a specific candidate instead of volunteer work.

IPP is one of the most dynamic all volunteer organization to work for. I have always been keen to work for development sector and during my initial phase in US, I got to know about IPP. Till then my journey with them has been really enriching.Volunteering at IPP is an excellent opportunity to explore areas of interest , cultivate new skills, enhance skills, apply your knowledge, hone your leadership skill, network with seasoned professionals from different fields while working towards making education accessible to developing nations. I can go on and on but in short I truly enjoyed being a part of the IPP team and I especially want to thank Dr Ron Krate and Ms. Justine for their excellent mentorship and support throughout my term at IPP.

I sent out a number of referrals looking for a virtual opportunity, but this is the only organization that took the time to contact me in return. I appreciate very much that they really do have a volunteer program and that they really are willing to take the time to contact me. I've already been contacted by several of their members, and am interviewing with them next week. If you want a good opportunity, they are definitely worth sending a referral to.

IPP assists colleges, universities, continuing eduaction, students & professors in the poor and developing countries. It is an incredible opportunity to make a global difference by working as a part of IPP. One can learn a lot while working with the members of IPP. One can work from home in flexible time and can get the best volunteer experience. Ron Krate, the founder, is a learned person from whom I am learning a lot. With his expertise in the area of education and technology he is a constant source of encouragement and inspiration to me and to all of us who is interested to learn and to make a global difference. We need help from everyone to provide help to the developing countries and people around the world.

IPP is a very dynamic organization permitting volunteers freedom in defining their own volunteer experience. However, within this context it also provides challenges that help you grow in different ways in an environment of support. The organization is a terrific arena for developing news skills, honing existing skills, or sharing the advantages of your established skills in a way that means something now and in the long term view. The goal of creating international professors directly addresses the heart of education and the limitations of many educational institutions. By creating a discussion across cultural boundaries and by sharing across perspectives we become able to see our limitations. The limits to how we think, what we see as possible and how we view problems can be seen by viewing our differences. We become able to think in new ways and to see the world outside of the box when we are exposed to new ways of thinking. I couldn't recommend it more strongly.

I wanted to volunteer because I liked what they stand for. I thought it would be a great idea to volunteer form an organization I will be proud of. They contacted me to send my resume and sounded very interested. I got an email notifying me that I will get contacted by IT people with some 'exciting' projects. After that, I heard nothing back. My inquiries fell on deaf ear. Now I volunteer for another organization, doing what I like to do. Communication is very important. If they don't have time to tell me, they don't have anything that match my skills, they're not worth my time.

I volunteer for IPP remotely and at a pace that is comfortable for me. Ron and the others I communicate with are all supportive and helpful. Ron works very very hard and is passionately dedicated to the IPP, which is motivating to those whom volunteer for him.
by Charles K. from VA (May 3, 2010)
There are more rewarding ways to volunteer your time. I volunteered to do "internet research" and was immediately appointed a "fellow." What qualifies one to be a fellow? Not sure. I was asked to create a google group and monitor said group, which I did for nearly one year. Activity on the board was low, so IPP shut it down. I guess I never really got how setting up a message board was helping anyone.

Its because this organization has come up with unique ideas where most of the organizations have been focusing far away from such opportunities where by it leads to many things to culture,togatherness, development,different methods of instructing and teaching and many others.

IPP is trying to link professors with overseas universities to help the world become more educated. I believe that education and understanding each other will help improve the world peace. The leader of the group is very easy to work with.

Because i think it is a great opportunity for both parties.

Since joining IPP I have learned a tremendous amount about communicating with other professionals around the world. I feel that I can make a difference in supporting professors, students, and interns with important projects in developing countries.

It is a well known fact that the region of Horn of Africa has a lot of problems caused by poverty, lack of stability, lack of social services such as health care, education, access to clean water,etc. HAIDO was formed by concerned professionals hailing from the region who want to promote the development of the region by engaging the local resources and by tapping international communities'expertise to tackle the enormous challenges the people of the region face.
