Most Popular Programs
"Cosmic Volunteers was able to create a medical internship in Nepal that suited my interests and gave me a first-hand look at medicine in a developing nation."
"My TV Journalism Internship in Ghana was the quintessential adventure I was looking for before graduating from college. Adjusting to the living conditions of a third-world country forced me to step outside of my comfort zone, a lesson more valuable than that of any classroom or textbook."
"Working as a nursing volunteer in Kenya was an awesome learning experience, as well as a challenging and eye opening one. Scott from Cosmic Volunteers was 100% accessible anytime that I needed him. Scott was also in contact with my parents and responded to any concerns they had."
