As a Childcare Volunteer, you'll work in community centers, schools and kindergartens providing individual attention and support to local children. Tasks include playing with children, organizing games and activities, assisting with homework, English classes and educating children about hygiene. You’ll be helping children aged between 3-7 years old, most of whom come from low-income families. Volunteers work closely with local staff, so don’t need prior childcare experience.
If you're an aspiring medical professional, this is a unique opportunity to assist local nurses and doctors with a range of tasks while learning about the healthcare system in Cusco. Pre-medical and lesser experienced students are able to assist local staff in routine jobs, while students in your third year of study or above, or qualified medical professionals are able to help with more hands-on tasks.
Tourism forms an integral part of the local economy in Peru, the ability to speak English gives locals a genuine opportunity to support themselves and find work. As an English Teaching volunteer, you’ll help with English lessons in local schools and community centers. Work varies but generally consists of tutoring, setting up small workshops, assisting local teachers and organizing educational games and activities.
This is a unique volunteering project in that your contribution as a volunteer is three-fold: your volunteering assists with construction and renovation tasks, your fees help to pay for materials, and the end product can then be used to host other important community projects. Volunteers help local building projects that would otherwise not be completed, lending time and funds to see them through to completion. Construction & Renovation
As a Jungle Conservation volunteer, you'll be based in the heart of the jungle, contributing to the preservation of the landscape and animals that call it home. You’ll get a rare insight into the rich Peruvian biodiversity while providing a valuable contribution on tasks including reforestation, trail conservation, home-base maintenance, animal inventories and research projects.
