• Peruvian culture is a gorgeous mosaic with Japanese, African, Chinese, and European pieces, which dates all the way back to the centuries-old Inca culture.

• Lima is the mega-capital of Peru, which is built on a coastal desert strip and home to 9 million inhabitants!

• The city is filled with fascinating museums, stunning parks, and important historical buildings—not to mention the city is recognized as having the best food in South America.

• Simply put: the Lima people, a.k.a. Limeños, are obsessed with food.

• Our exclusive Teen Home-Base is located in a lovely, quiet, and safe residential neighborhood of Lima.

Once enrolled, you will have the chance to select the volunteer opportunity that's most interesting to you. Volunteers will always receive their first preference. The only exception to this will be when there are national or school holidays, or there are exceptional circumstances.

Whether you're teaching the English alphabet, leading students in a song, or giving a math lesson, your service will support local youth and educators. Apply your passion to make an impact that will resonate for generations to come!

Nurturing future generations begins with a single lesson, a simple smile, or just a bit of extra attention. When you volunteer with child care centers, daycare centers, community centers, and other organizations, you are working towards strengthening a community's greatest asset: their children.

By trading stories with an elderly friend, serving meals, or lightening the burden of an administrator, your service will connect you to your new community in a very special way. By offering an elderly person attention and love, you’ll build bridges between cultures and across generations.

In many communities, individuals with disabilities face harsh social stigmas and are left with few resources. Work alongside our partner organizations to bring joy to the lives of people with disabilities as they strive to live each day to its fullest.
