I want to do medical missions outreach work in a different country?
I always hear about people going to countries in central/south america and building schools, teaching, or spreading God’s word. I am not a part of any church, but i was wondering if there are any credible organizations that do these types of trips for high school students. I want to travel and help people. I am looking into some sort of medical career in the future (dentistry, optometry, medicine, etc.) and i know that once i get the needed degree, i can help people a lot more.
Right now though, I would like to maybe teach or bring supplies or help build houses and other facilities. I would really like to do medical mission outreach work in a Spanish speaking country because I am becoming fluent and would like an opportunity to practice.

Anyone interested in learning about medical missions outreach, medicine and volunteering abroad can participate; you only need to fill out the application, provide a reference and be at least 16 years-old.”
