Pod Volunteer – Community Education in Peru – Gold Residential

Join Pod Volunteer to support the children’s education team by assisting in afterschool lessons and the running of the community project

How can I help?

You will join a dedicated local team to provide educational support to children from low income families. The project is a supportive environment in which the children gain help and encouragement with their homework as well as access to the school resources they need.

As a volunteer, you will assist the children with their homework, provide one-on-one support to those that need it, as well as creating fun games and activities for the students to get involved with!

When can I join?

Any Sunday throughout the year for 2 – 12 weeks.

Where will I be living?

The volunteer apartment is basic but in a great central location, a short walk from both the project and local shops. Bedrooms are shared with 2-3 volunteers per room and there are shared bathrooms.

Huaraz is a small but lively city, filled with thriving markets, cafés and restaurants and a hub for the outdoor tourist industry. Surrounding the city, there are lots of outdoor activities including day walks, trekking, mountain climbing and mountain biking.

Placement fee

Volunteer placements start from £625 for 2 weeks. This includes accommodation, airport pick up and transfer to the project + planning your trip support from the Pod team.
