Teach for Health is currently seeking dedicated volunteers to help assist us with our projects. We are committed to making the experience rewarding and educational for our volunteers, and also for the communities where they work. With that in mind we ask the following of our potential volunteers:
- Commit to at least 6 weeks of work in Nicaragua. This will allow you to establish momentum with your projects, get to know the communities, and give our organization the help we need to justify the training and support costs of getting volunteers prepared for our programs.
- Experienced professionals are welcome to talk to us about how they can join our program for less than 6 weeks as a consultant. Current professional skills we are looking for include: Advanced Epidemiology for tracking and assessing community health, Biostatistics and database management, Disaster response and training experience.
- Our program currently accepts undergraduate students on a very limited case by case basis. Please contact us if you are interested. Most volunteers are graduate students in Public Health, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Education.
