You can do so much more than just teach English on this project; you will be working, side-by-side with your students, sharing perspective and encouraging cultural understanding. As an English teacher, you will also be exposing your students to one of the world’s most spoken languages and the one that fuels the global economy. Students range in age from primary school age to the elderly - but no matter who sits in your classroom, teaching English is bound to be an extraordinarily fulfilling experience.
Amazon Riverboat Exploration
The Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve, the location of this study, is a rare example of how conservation can work in collaboration with local people. Today, global climate change, bringing severe droughts and floods, threatens even this protected area. Your help is critical in the effort to survey, manage, and protect the region so that wildlife and local human communities can thrive together. What does it take to contribute to such an important project? You’ll float down a lazy river, watching dolphins leap and counting the macaws as they fly overhead.

Work with the Inca on a Jewellery Making Initiative
Volunteer in Peru and work on a fascinating project which combines the resurrection of traditional cultural Inca jewellery making techniques with a social initiative in the city of Cusco. Young adults from disadvantaged communities are being given apprenticeships to learn the ancient techniques of their Incan ancestors, providing them valuable skills and an income while ensuring the skill never dies out. The workshop looks to sell the pieces it makes to sustain its work and is looking to attract the tourists in Cusco to see their craft.
