Volunteer in Peru Overview

Peru Vivential will provide many activities to our volunteers. We are looking for volunteers who would like to have a rewarding and exciting experience.

For a small fee (€8.00 / day per person) the Volunteer in Peru program provides volunteers with housing, weekend excursions, weekly salsa classes, and 2 private (1-3 people) Spanish classes each week.

Tasks & Roles

Generally, volunteers will work with classes four twice a week between 2 or 4 hours per day however this estimate can fluctuate. Lessons last on average 45 minutes, but can sometimes be shortened or extended depending on the schools and extracurricular student activities.

The class teacher will usually be there in the classroom with you but normally not participate. Depending on which class you teach the assistance you will receive from the teacher will vary.

Specific tasks include a combination of the activities listed below:

  • Giving English lessons to children (sometimes there is also a demand for Arts or Sports classes).
  • Bringing new ideas to improve the HELP English project.
  • Preparing lesson plans or even a syllabus/study program for your subject, considering what’s been done in the past and what can be improved now.
  • Guaranteeing that all the materials used during each session are stored and put back into place afterwards.

Volunteer in Peru Living

We can provide more details on how best to reach us, on confirmation and agreement of stay.

Volunteer in Peru – What else?

We provide our volunteers with a rewarding experience of learning about Peruvian culture while living with volunteers from around the world.
