Tufts 1+4 Service Locations

We are pleased to offer service opportunities in three countries on two continents—and in 27 cities across the United States through City Year. In addition to the diversity of experiences offered by locations as disparate as India and Ecuador, each site also features a variety of possible service placements in areas like education, cultural preservation, environmental sustainability, social entrepreneurship, and more.

Tisch College works closely with experienced domestic and international service organizations to support a year of meaningful service learning for all of our fellows no matter the country, city, or placement they choose. All service locations have gone through an extensive evaluation process that includes personal site visits from our staff, interviews with organization leaders, vetting of potential host families, and comprehensive agreements that address any situation that may arise during the service year.

In short, all of our service locations offer a rewarding, transformational experience. But they're all different, and may appeal to different interests, passions, and personalities. Explore each available service site below.
