Get to know Peruvian culture and society through learning Spanish and volunteering in Cusco, Peru!
No matter how brief your volunteer experience, you will receive life long memories and a deep insight into the social and cultural reality. The longer you stay the more sustainable can be your volunteer work. There are volunteer positions available, beginning with a minimum of 2 weeks up to 2 months or more…
Immerse yourself in a volunteer project in Cusco or in the Manu national reserve as an extension of your ACUPARI Spanish course!
A special offer is our program "3 months Peru intensive“, including 4 weeks of Spanish tuition and 8 weeks of volunteering experience in Peru.
Normally, the minimum stay in a volunteer placement is two months. Nevertheless, shorter stays are possible when you work for a state school or volunteer in the jungle or in the "ceja de selva“. As a volunteer, your work is a valuable contribution to our community. Volunteering will give you the unique opportunity to live and work with local people and learn about their culture first hand.
There are a variety of volunteering options. You can spend time with children in a children´s hospital, in a kindergarten, an orphanage, or a street project. There are positions in several hospitals, a women's refuge, in agriculture or in the jungle. If you have any special wishes, let us know.
As a volunteer you have to find your own accommodation. ACUPARI can assist you in finding an affordable place to stay in Cusco. Please state in your registration what type of accommodation you are interested in.
Staying in the Manu national reserve is a little bit more expensive, but for sure it will be a real unforgettable experience.
A placement fee of 80,- Euro goes to our partner organisations and supports ACUPARI's Books for Children-project.
At the end of your chosen volunteer experience, you will receive a certificate.
