High school students in the Andes face years of racism and prejudice, but with support and guidance are finding their voice and speaking out on topics like dignity, violence, and industry's impact on the environment. All this is happening in a format that readily translates to the job market--digital multimedia production. Students 13-18 are learning to make videos, posters, and even websites that draw in the public to start conversation and begin the path to change for their community.
Volunteers don't need any special multimedia skills, as training is provided. You can also work in English, art, or sports.
You'll live and work in mountain communities near Huancayo, staying with a host family from the community. At certain times of the year, you can get involved in your family's potato planting and harvest, or take care of the family's guinea pig farm.
This is a position for independent volunteers who take initiative. We want you to help shape these programs!
