PROGRAM OVERVIEW

We believe that the best way to achieve positive change is by providing the next generation with access to quality education.

In Peru, schools often suffer from underfunding and limited hands-on learning. This, along with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, has significantly impacted the learning environment at our local partner schools. As we work to improve education quality and create a more conducive learning environment, your skills, knowledge and passion are vital to this program!

 

Making an Impact

Inspire the next generation of changemakers!

Education builds the foundation of what we do across our Global Community. By improving access to quality education, we hope to inspire a new generation of decision-makers amongst the local community. Supported by our team on the ground, you’ll get to work on a range of awesome long-term education projects, some of which include:

Australian university students teach English as part of an overseas volunteer program in Peru

Designing and facilitating conversational English sessions at our local partner to improve the learners' competency and confidence in speaking English!

Australian university students teach STEM education in Peru as part of an overseas volunteer program

Engaging learners in STEM Education (science, technology, engineering, maths) and life skills workshops that allow them to learn in a more hands-on environment, develop their critical thinking skills and become more inspired in their education!

Australian university students work on a renovation project at a local school in Peru as part of an overseas volunteer program

Working 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!
