Minimum of 5 volunteers required. ISL's Sports with Borders goal is to use sports as a vehicle for team work, wellness education, and personal growth. Through sports activities and mentorship, volunteers provide children in ISL's partner communities the opportunity to hone their athletic skills while giving sports enthusiasts a chance experience another culture and gain global perspective. While ‘futbol’ is king in Colombia, ISL's welcomes enthusiasts of baseball/softball, basketball, football, or any other team sport to share their passion with kids in ISL partner communities. This program is all-inclusive.

ISL offers opportunities for high school students to travel, learn, and volunteer in a variety of amazing settings. We offer our Community Enrichment, Ecology, Sports without Borders, and Global Health programs to high school students. Teen volunteers are able to engage with another culture in a meaningful way and begin to cultivate a global awareness that will benefit them as they progress from secondary to university education. Involvement in a global service experience not only instills confidence, it can be a powerful determinant in setting educational and career goals.

Regardless of background, volunteers are able to receive an invaluable opportunity to travel, learn about another culture, and serve a developing community.
