About Program

Peru Vivential, non-governmental organization located in Trujillo, Peru, conducts English teaching project for children enrolled in public school system. Due to the economy system and on going development, most of Peru public schools do not offer English classes to students – lack of finances and professionals is mostly the reason why.
Our mission is to provide possibility for kids to have English classes and possibility to get in touch with other cultures, regardless of their financial status.
We strongly believe we are opening up new perspectives for brighter future by sharing with them our skills and knowledge. Side of that, by bringing you here we're making and impact and actively creating better environment for them!
Our goal is to enroll as many schools as possible in our project and we need you for that.

Best Volunteer Opportunity in South America

I just finished spending one month volunteering with PeruVivential and can say that it was hands down the best experience of my life. William is an amazing organizer who does everything in his power to make your experience both comfortable and enjoyable. If you like to teach and work with children, I highly recommend volunteering with this organization. I had the opportunity to spend my weekdays teaching English to children during the day and adults at night with a nice break in the middle of the day allowing me to explore the city, visit the nearby beaches of Huanchaco, or just enjoy the Peruvian Sun. The weekends were also amazing as William organized trips for us such as visiting the ruins of Chan Chan, surfing the waves of Huanchaco, or sandboarding the dunes of Trujillo. Additionally, I had the opportunity to spend a couple weekends travelling to other amazing sites in Peru such as Machu Picchu and Huaraz as the Trujillo airport is a short 15 minute ride away. Finally, the apartment was comfortable and contained all basic amenities such as hot water, a fridge/freezer, and wifi. I highly recommend this NGO for anyone looking to volunteer in South America!

Perfect place to stay :)

My experience at Peru Vivential was just awesome! Me and my gridlfriend we stayed in the volunteer house for 3 months. We had our own room and enjoyed the time with the other volunteers!
The teaching was also so much fun, as the kids are super cute and always bring you a great smile on the face.
The organisation provided us with a lot of activities (archeological sites, sandbaording, etc.) which was a super experience, especially because William (the organiser) is just such a good person!
If you like to surf, this place is also perfect, as you can reach the next cool surf beach in just 15 min by bus.
I would always consider joining this program again and can recommend it to everybody who likes to work with children, wants to learn spanish (William provides excellent 1 on 1 spanish classes) and wants to have a great peruvian experience :)

What a wonderful experience!

I first came to volunteer here in August 2016 for a month, and I enjoyed it so much I came back again in November and will be leaving in February!!
The organisation runs two programmes, teaching English to both children and to adults, and yjere is also the chance to help out at a Rescue centre for street dogs.
Even though I had no experience with teaching before, I thought I would like to give it a go.....and am so glad that I did! The organisation leader, William, supports each volunteer and after a couple of days I felt confident enough to lead the classes. The children are so loving and it is very easy to feel like you really are making a difference to them. Learning English really opens up windows of opportunity for these kids, whose futures otherwise may be pretty limited.
I helped out in the gog shelter too and wanted to bring most of them home with me!
The volunteer apartment is safe and a happy place where everyone does their best to make you feel at home and everyone mucks in to plan classes, and practise their Spanish.
There are loads of different activities arranged at weekends too, never a dull moment! We went surfing, sandboarding, to night clubs and also on tours to the archaeological sites nearby. The beach resort of Haunchaco is a short bus journey away, so I even got to work on my tan!
A great experience all round, and a great way of meeting not only other volunteers from all over the world, but also lots of local people who were really happy to share their culture.
Highly recommended!
