Are volunteers abroad right now? Are you taking applications? When are programs opening back up? We have the answers to the questions you’re asking, all in one place.
So many things have been changing for every one of our ILP countries and we know you’re pretty anxious to hear updates … While there's several things we're waiting on to help us determine when programs will be reopening, we really wanted to find a way to keep you up to speed and let you in on information that we have week to week. So we put it all in one place, mapped everything out, and are giving you a behind-the-scenes look at it all.
We have a main page complete with all of our ILP countries mapped out + some FAQs we’re sure you want the answers to. On the map, you can easily click into each country and read more about how things are looking: everything from opening borders, potential flights, visa policies, schools reopening, and what travel could look like.
We recently finished up the Fall 2020 semester with a group in Montenegro and Ukraine. After careful consideration, we've decided it's time to reopen a few more programs for the Spring 2021 semester as well — there will be groups in Montenegro, Ukraine, the Dominican Republic, Uganda, and Costa Rica. Right now we're making updates on our COVID-19 information page regarding the upcoming Summer 2021 program, but we’ll be changing and updating the information for the Fall 2021 semester in the coming months, and for future semesters after, if needed. You’ll want to keep an eye on that page, which we’re updating weekly.
We’ve been working so hard behind-the-scenes to help figure out what life is looking like for our countries around the world and when we can have ILP semesters again — and we are so excited to share all of this hard work with you. We hope it’ll help answer some major questions and keep you more informed about the countries you already love.
