Volunteering abroad: How do I know if the program is legitimate?

  1. 0
    HI! (This is my very first post ever!)

    I am thinking of participating a volunteer mission trip. Here are some I've found:

    http://medicalstudentmissions.org/MSM/Home.html
    http://www.mvpbolivia.com/

    Is there anyway I can find out if these are legitimate? Is there a gov't website that I can look up if they are registered as non profit?

    Thank you in advance!

    I have been researching the same thing. I'm planning to do a medical mission to Africa around next summer. I had no idea where to start but I found the most helpful info on this board. I made a list of all the orgs that ppl mentioned in all the posts I found concerning missions. I googled them, checked out their websites. There are so many. Now I'm trying to narrow them down so I can begin the application process.

    I would also like to know if there is a way to determine if the orgs are legit. Does anyone know???
