HOW ELSE CAN I GET INVOLVED WITH TREK MEDICS?

I'M LOOKING FOR A DONATED AMBULANCE

If you’re interested in a donated ambulance, we unfortunately don’t have any available — we’d encourage you to read this article before investing the time and money needed to acquire, operate and maintain one.

I'D LIKE TO PRACTICE MY MEDICAL SKILLS BEFORE MEDICAL SCHOOL

Our staff and volunteers do not provide medical care in the countries where we work without local accreditation. If you are interested in riding along and observing the services of one of our partner agencies, you are welcome to visit them at any time. You can learn more about those opportunities here: https://www.trekmedics.org/get-involved/ride-along-dom-rep/

If you choose to visit one of our partners of your own accord, please donate cash directly to the Manager.

Our partners are emergency medical service providers, not tour operators, and every day is a struggle to maintain their service. Offering your skills, training and heroic demeanor is a poor substitute for a stocked ambulance and a full tank.
If you are able to travel to visit them, you can make a donation directly to them, too. Thank you!

I'M INTERESTED IN NON-MEDICAL VOLUNTEER POSITIONS

We are always happy to hear from people who are interested in volunteering with our organization. If you are interested in volunteering with our field programs, we accept applications for long-term placements (minimum 6-months with a small stipend). These positions likely require fluency in local languages, so please list those skills at the top of your resume if applicable. If you are interested in supporting our front office through a volunteer position, please send us an email describing what skills you can offer and how you think you could best support us. The best applications are those that spell out what the volunteer can offer, why it’d be important to our organization, and how they’d plan to achieve it.

I'M INTERESTED IN PAID POSITIONS

All paid positions will be listed above.
