Global Programs

We believe it is imperative for young adults to gain an understanding of the diverse needs of the underprivileged. It is with this objective in mind that the global volunteer programs were established in Morocco and Mexico. In Morocco, volunteers participate in rural health clinics, schools, orphanages and farming activities. In Mexico, volunteers spend time at an orphanage in a rural area outside Mexico City where they teach English, assist in orphanage renovation projects, and greenhouse planting activities.

Prior to their departure, UFS provides volunteers with the option to fundraise for their individual trip costs by assisting them in setting up personal donation websites. After the volunteers return home, they are required to prepare a trip presentation documenting their experience abroad that is shared with their local communities. They also support one or more projects that address one of the social, economic, education or health challenges they observed during their service experience. This enables volunteers to maintain their relationship with the communities they served by collectively fundraising for projects that serve as a source of sustainable change.
