Sponsor a Volunteer

A Vida Adventure does not only help student volunteers decide if the medical, dental or veterinary career path is right for them, it also opens their eyes to Central American culture, the needs of those who live in communities with limited resources, and the life-long friendships they will make. For more information about how Vida has changed the lives of past volunteers, visit our Testimonials page.

Vida is an official 501c3 organization but please keep in mind that individual volunteer sponsorships are not tax-deductible in accordance to the IRS guidelines and regulations; however they are a great way to give a future doctor, dentist or veterinarian a life changing experience.

We would like to thank you in advance for the sponsorship that you are making to the volunteers who make us great!
