Volunteering in Latin America

Why
volunteer

Volunteering is a way to travel with real meaning. Affordable, authentic and eye-opening, it helps to build bridges between communities from all across the world. You’ll meet incredibly inspiring people, experience completely new cultures and, little by little, help to make the world a better place. Not only will you be working to educate and empower people from all kinds of communities, you’ll learn a whole lot about yourself at the same time. You’ll visit incredible places, pick up new skills and feel part of something packed with heart. In this sense, volunteering is about learning as much as it is teaching. It connects people all across the planet, building tolerance and understanding between different cultures. That’s what makes it so special.

Everyone is completely different, which is one of the most wonderful things about our world. We’ll help you follow your own path by matching you to a project that reflects your own values and passions. Spend your days playing with kids in the favelas of Rio, nurse injured primates back to health in the tropical forests of Costa Rica, help to empower an isolated jungle community in Colombia or lend at hand at an urban eco-garden in Buenos Aires. The work can be tough and you may find yourself facing challenges situations, but each one will help you to grow. The rewards that you’ll reap will be worth your effort one million times over. You’ll come home looking at the planet with a new pair of eyes.

Experience is not what happens to you, it's what you do with what happens to you.
