Global Impact Corps: Global Health Volunteer Abroad Opportunities

*Unite For Sight has been featured weekly on CNN International and in The
New York Times*

*Unite For Sight is the world's leader in socially responsible, effective
volunteering abroad.* Unite For Sight's Global Impact Corps is an *immersive
global health experience* for students and for professionals.

*All volunteers participating in Unite For Sight's international programs
are Global Impact Fellows.  *They participate daily with local ophthalmic
nurses, local optometrists, and local ophthalmologists to eliminate patient
barriers to care and to facilitate comprehensive year-round eye care for
patients living in extreme poverty.  Through hands-on, structured training,
volunteers gain a comprehensive understanding about best practices in
volunteerism, global health, and international development.  Global Impact
Fellows gain skills and are nurtured to become new leaders in global health.
 Additionally, Global Impact Fellows may participate in the Global Impact
Lab, an optional program for volunteers interested in pursuing global health
research.
