Volunteer Program in Peru

Description

Volunteer Program Our Volunteer Program in Cusco provides the unique opportunity to live and work in Peru. Volunteers experience first-hand the rich cultural diversity of Peru while learning (or improving) their Spanish. Volunteers contribute to Peruvian society and thus bridge the gap between foreign visitors and native people of Cusco.

Volunteer work in Peru is popular option among travelers, students and other people interesting in this experience in Peru. As a volunteer in Peru, you can combine your volunteer work with Spanish classes in Cusco to get the most out of your interaction with the Peruvian people.

Most volunteers live together in our volunteer house or residence in the city center of Cusco. A volunteer coordinator prepares you for your volunteer work in a personal interview and a workshop about working in a cross-cultural environment with other volunteers. All volunteers are invited to participate in cultural activities such as salsa dance classes or Peruvian workshop cooking.

We offer placements at approximately 20 projects in Cusco interested in working with volunteers that need a helping hand, such as a local clinic, hospitals, sports clubs, Kindergarten, after-school projects, projects for street children.
