We're mindful to keep your out-of-pocket costs as low as we can because we want this experience living abroad for a few months to actually be realistic for you. And honestly? We're really proud of how affordable things worked out to be. That being said, not everyone has got a savings account already budgeted out for a big experience like this.
There are monthly payment plans and we see so many volunteers paying for much of the costs with fundraising. They're getting really creative, even doing things like selling homemade cookie dough to friends and family to raise thousands of dollars.
We reached out and asked a bunch of ILP volunteers what worked best for them and packed allllll of their tips (plus a bunch of our own) into a totally free, downloadable guide.
