The Ranger Program is WWO’s only US-based program and sends volunteers to work in the countries we serve. The first volunteers - so called Rangers - were college students but over time, the ranks have included medical students and practicing professionals with specialized skills, doctors who help establish medical protocols or youngsters with HIV/AIDS…athletes who help kids organize soccer teams … artists who open up new ways for children to communicate … actors who help orphans tell their stories through drama … and even family groups with a specific project to complete. There are three types of Rangers: Global Arts, Orphan and Service Rangers.
