Educational Volunteer Programs in Cusco, Peru


Detail Information
Come volunteer in Peru, in the city of Cusco, the cultural heart of the Peruvian Andes and former capital of the legendary Inca Empire. You can choose between various educational volunteer programs, all aimed at offering children and adults in underprivileged communities a basic education. You can help out in kindergartens, primary and secondary schools, where you will assist the teachers in class, teach English and share your culture and customs with the kids. Help is also needed in schools in the picturesque Sacred Valley of the Incas. Before starting your volunteer work, you can take a Spanish course in order to be better prepared for your program and feel more confident when interacting with the locals. During your program, you can choose to stay at the volunteer house or live with a Peruvian host family, for a true cultural journey.
