Junior Volunteer / Student Program

We depend on the hearts of Junior Volunteers/ students to contribute their energy and passion, even for a brief moment. More than 20 junior volunteers have assisted in the IHCV medical missions since 2004. IHCV Junior Volunteers build awareness, raise funds and educate students about our core values of commitment, leadership and volunteerism. Student leaders are a valuable asset to every medical mission.

IHCV has volunteer students on international medical missions to help educate children and families about good preventive health care, play therapy for hospitalized children, and administrative supportive role for medical and surgical teams. Most importantly the junior volunteers engage in learning of different cultures. When students help others in need, they learn how they can make an impact on the world and become true global citizens.

Medical Students

IHCV is proud to offer global health mission opportunities to medical students in their final year.

Application for missions in August/September are due on March 1st of that year. Applications postmarked after this date and incomplete applications will not be considered. Priority will be given to applicants who have a background with IHCV through a partnering university.
