This program is near and dear to my heart, as both my father (a retired banker) and my uncle (a retired engineer) have volunteered many times with the International Executive Service Corps (IESC). The  organization promotes economic development, prosperity, and stability by providing technical and managerial assistance and consulting in trade and competitiveness, financial services, tourism development, information technology, and health and business training.

Projects “vary in length from a week to several months. Many IESC volunteers are retired, although a substantial number are still working and active in their industries and professions. Economy airfare and specified travel related expenses, such as immunizations and visas, are covered, and volunteers receive a per-diem for meals and housing. If an overseas project lasts 28 days or longer, International Executive Service Corps may pay expenses to enable a spouse to accompany a volunteer.”
