Volunteer Work Latin America can provide you with the information, assistance and insight you are after in order to make your volunteer experience the most impactful and meaningful. Check out the descriptions below and visit our video page to get an idea of what to expect from each project type.

Cultural Projects. These projects are great in allowing volunteers to learn a lot about the customs, culture and traditions of local people, while at the same time making a difference to the community of which they will become part. Placements include youth groups, communal associations, cultural institutions and local media.

Decisions, decisions, decisions!

Ecological Projects. Conservation often takes a back seat in poorer countries, so volunteers are crucial. The work can be physically demanding, but it is consistently rewarding. Placements include working at an eco-lodge, protecting sea turtles and educating local people about environmental issues.

Social Projects. One of the most varied categories, our social projects encompass many different areas of work, including working in orphanages, engaging in community-building projects and assisting in rehabilitation centers.

Education Projects. Volunteers in the education-sector are appreciated beyond expectation since education plays a vital role in the development of community. Placements include teaching English, providing classroom assistance, working with children with special-needs children, and improving accessible educational materials.

Decisions, decisions, decisions!

Health Projects. A slightly more specialized area. The drastic differences in health care systems in Latin America make volunteers in health projects completely invaluable. Placements include working in mental institutions, elderly homes, health clinics and hospitals.

For those who are interested in working longer term, we also offer a variety of internships (click here).

Whichever project you choose, the work you do will make a huge difference in the lives of the local people. Contact us at info4@volunteerworklatinamerica.org to see how you can make a positive difference in the lives of others!
