  :: Volunteer Peru

As the cradle of the Incas, Peru is one of the most mysterious destinations on the planet. Expanding from the depths of the Amazon rainforest to the heights of the Andes, the dark seduction of Peru has enticed many volunteers.

The cultural and financial heart of Peru, Lima or "City of Kings" is located or the Peruvian coastal plains. Downtown Lima has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site with its archetypal 16th Century Cathedral and Presidential Palace dominating the landscape. Other cultural monuments are Lima's original city walls, used to defend the city against pirates and privateers.

If you prefer a start a TEFL career, we have a host of volunteer opportunities, teaching English in the heart of Peruvian rainforest. Breath-taking peaks and sheer plateaus make mystical Peru unlike any other country.

Cusco

You may have heard of the Incas, but nothing can prepare you for the moment you step off the plane at Cusco's small airport. Your bird's eye view was one thing, but up close the old stone foundations of one of the world's greatest civilisations are something else. Towering archways mix in with some of the finest colonial Spanish architecture on the continent - an incredible architectural fusion.

It's also home to a colourful mix of people, with its warm locals and steady stream of voluntary workers and language learners. Cusco's Inca trail is a favourite with intrepid volunteers, from the sheer vistas of Machu Picchu to the ruins of the Temple of the Sun - Cusco is city rich with colonial splendor and indigenous history.

Volunteer in Peru and experience a country that has the fastest growing economy in Latin America, with a good record in education and muted inflation. The last 50 years has seen the literacy rate skyrocket from 42% to 89%. These are impressive accomplishments in a country as diverse as Peru. The job now is to bring education where it’s needed in the rural areas, and to conserve the verdant Amazon Basin, which occupies half of Peru.

  :: Volunteer Information for Gap Year Students

For gap year students joining our Volunteer Peru placements there are plenty of volunteering opportunities on offer. If you are considering a career in any kind of teaching then our volunteer placements in Peru can provide invaluable experience especially if you have not been in a classroom before. It is often very useful to have experience of working with young people prior to taking courses such as the PGCE and the Volunteer Peru program can provide this, as well as a valuable cross-cultural experience.

Volunteer Peru also provides experience for those wishing to study conservation, biodiversity through the conservation programs. Jobs in these fields are competitive and experience as a conservation volunteer in Peru can provide your CV with an edge over other candidates.

Archaeology is a similarly competitive field and Volunteer Peru’s archaeology programs offer similar opportunities to bolster your CV in this field, as well as the opportunity to work in an archaeologist’s paradise; as home to a host of pre-Columbian civilizations and empires, Peru has more unexcavated archaeological sites than anywhere else in the region. A gap-year placement doing archeological work can also provide an excellent grounding for history university courses, as well as archeology itself. It can also provide great experience for careers in forensics and anthropology.
