Spanish language courses and Volunteer in Peru & Ecuador

The Program

After one, four or eight weeks of intensive Spanish private lessons of approximately 20 hours per week, you will begin your volunteer project. Everything will have been organised before your arrival according to your interests and availabilities. You will be able to help in orphanages, schools, libraries, local branches of an international NGO, projects of native plant rehabilitation. In order to complete a successful program you must be able to show a lot of flexibility and humility. The purpose of volunteering is to give something to others without asking for anything in return except the satisfaction of having accomplished an important mission…fighting indifference. Participants must be 18+.
