The UI Alumni Association Iowa Voyagers offers opportunities for UI students to travel overseas on volunteer service programs. We encourage students to take advantage of these opportunities not only to serve, but to experience other cultures.
Student Volunteer Service Travel—Operation Romania
May 24 - June 7, 2014
Our volunteer service travel is one of the most fulfilling and life-changing Iowa Voyagers student programs—not only for the UI student volunteers and the individuals they help, but also for our travel staff and our generous donor whose funds make this experience possible. Currently, our efforts are focused on Romania, but we hope to add other destinations in the future.
Each year, we join a team of caring people who travel to Romania to improve the lives of disadvantaged children. Cradles and classrooms await your helping hands as you nurture babies and toddlers in a hospital clinic setting and help Romanian school children practice their English skills.
In its eighth year, the Dr. Ken Magid Child Advocacy Service Scholarship is available for qualified UI students to use toward the Operation Romania trip.
