Volunteer Experience
(including Dental)
Among all the charities which receive international vols: Bruce Org is a rated NGO component.

Who qualifies? In particular: 4th year dental students from recognised dental colleges. In general: Anyone who is positive, works well with others, has something to contribute and possesses a natural affection for the people we are trying to help (poor children and abandoned mothers). Age, sex, race, religion and nationality make no difference. It helps if you know at least a few basic words in Spanish [we also provide free Spanish lessons]. Some volunteers bring their professional skills, dental or medical, Vets, engineers, ecologists, agronomists; but most of us come to teach & help very poor children or to assist their mothers to become financially independent. We seek people who are enthusiastic about helping our children & communities. The minimum term for a Dental Elective is one week (the average is 2 or 3 weeks and there is no limit to the number of weeks). We welcome your questions....nicole@bruceorg.org

We offer our Dental Elective volunteers accommodation during their stay with us. We provide breakfast and also help organize daily lunch & dinner at a choice of two restaurants nearby the volunteer complex @ around $2 per meal. Volunteers have the use of the kitchen in the volunteer residence - if you want to fix a meal or a snack. We provide a translator, give free Spanish lessons, and most importantly provide the opportunity to participate in up to 6 hours per week day of intensive hands-on dental work in professional, public &/or field clinics.
