A minimum of 8 weeks is required to participate in the Standard Volunteer Work Program. Initially, students participate in a four week Spanish Program. Part of the Spanish Program can be completed in Sacred Valley and/or Manu. Following these four weeks, all volunteers move into school's Student Residence, settling there for the rest of the program. While volunteering, different activities (meetings, workshops, extra Spanish Classes, hikes on Cusco's outskirts) will be organized. Volunteers can count of the continuous support of our Volunteer Coordinator that will have at least one personal interview with each volunteer and take him/her to the project the first day of work.
Volunteers are placed in orphanages, schools, hospitals, projects for street children etc. Opportunities for non-social volunteer work (tourist agencies, teaching English, etc.) are also available. We can mail a complete list of all Volunteer Projects (subject to change) upon request.
