PROGRAM OVERVIEW

On this challenge you will spend two weeks volunteering on a variety of projects aimed at improving education quality in the Sacred Valley. You will be challenged to step out of your comfort zone and think creatively as you volunteer to give local children and their families a brighter future.

 

who can volunteer?

Our Peru Community Challenge is perfect for anyone who wants experience teaching or working with children, is interested in grass-roots community development or someone who just wants to use their skills to make a difference! 

 

what you'll be doing

You will be volunteering in one of our partner schools to teach a range of workshops that supplement the national curriculum and improve education quality. You could be teaching sessions that focus on conversational English, STEM, life skills, creative arts and sports! We encourage our volunteers to be creative and deliver fun workshops that will both engage children and allow them to learn hands-on.

 

You will also have the chance to volunteer on a renovation project at one of our partner schools with the aim of creating a safer and more inspiring learning environment. You could be painting an educational mural, renovating a playground, creating a library, installing a hand-washing station and more!

 

weekly structure

Following an induction and orientation when you arrive, your volunteering days will be Monday-Friday with the weekends free to do your own travel. We recommend heading to UNESCO World Heritage city Cusco and making a trip to the infamous Rainbow Mountain! 

 

Visit Machu Picchu

After your volunteer program you can join our optional extension trip for $800 and embark on the Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu, a truly once in a lifetime experience! On this 5-day trek you'll walk more than 70km and reach an altitude of 4600m above sea level as you make your way to South America's most famous landmark. You'll see Humantay Lake, cross Salkantay Mountain and pass through cloud forests before reaching Machu Picchu for that bucket list moment at the end of your trip!
