The benefits of volunteering extend to you - the volunteer, and to the local community in Peru where you will serve. Personal benefits include development of life skills, personal growth, friendship, increased self confidence, social awareness, and building independence. An international volunteer experience will also enhance career prospects.
In participating with this program you are helping the efforts of a local grassroots organisation. Volunteer efforts directly benefit local groups, local communities, and local people. The program works with partner organizations in Peru to support them in achieving their goals and ensuring that their projects are both sustainable and effective.
What to Expect?
Volunteers work at either the Manu National Park, or the Tambopata Jungle in the jungle region of Peru in the Sacred Valley. At the jungle project, volunteers may assist in creating a species inventory, flora research and orchid planting, bamboo removal, teaching at the local school, helping maintain trails.
Subsidized Spanish lessons can be arranged either before or after your project, but may include additional costs for housing.
