Squads Abroad is a 501c3 non-profit organization under our parent company Global Brigades, a Platinum Level Guidestar member for Financial Transparency. Since 2004, our organization has collectively mobilized more than 70,000 international volunteers to help resolve global health and economic disparities around the world.

TeleSquads is the world’s first virtual experiential-learning and volunteer program for high school student groups on an international level.   

 

STEM TeleSquads is an international collaboration to improve access to clean potable water in a rural school in Panama.  Each TeleSquad is a live STEM case study that provides designs for the implementation of a water storage tank in a partner school.  Our bilingual on-the-ground teams guide students to conduct a rapid needs assessment,  survey land, assess water sources, test water quality, and ultimately design and present a proposal for the implementation.

Squads are passionate groups of volunteers who mobilize abroad to create positive change. Each Squad type has a skill-based focus area that support the education, health and economic development objectives of community partners. Faculty choose their dates, duration (typically 1-2 weeks), and their site location from one of our six program countries.
