Learn Spanish and volunteer in Peru

Si, Vamos! Let`s volunteer! We allow you to combine your Spanish lessons with volunteering in Cusco. Cusco is a great place for your volunteer dream. All year round, Cusco and its surrounding towns offer a variety of cultural activities. With many historical and archaeological sites both within and outside of the city. The most popular destinations volunteers can explore are the magical Sacred Valley, Rainbow Mountain, Lake Titicaca, and the famous Machu Picchu. There are a lot of other must-see places and you will have a great time!

The Volunteer project

We collaborate with a project where you can work with children and youth between 4 and 17 years old. It`s a nice opportunity to practice your Spanish and you will get a smile on your face. The volunteer project is nearby our school and your accommodation. After walking 10 minutes from the school to the bus stop, it takes about half an hour by bus to get to the project. By taxi, it`s only 15 minutes from the school to the project. Volunteer activities take place from Tuesday to Friday from 3.30 pm until 6 pm. The coordinator of the project coordinates and helps you with the daily activities of the project. Everyday tasks vary, but they need help with assisting in:

  • Planned daily activities such as English, Music, Theatre/Drama, Arts and Crafts
  • Homework accompaniment
  • Recreational activities
  • Playful, recreational activities for girls, boys, and teenagers participating in the project.
  • Tutoring


During your time in Cusco, you will have 2 choices. You can stay at the student's apartment from the school. Of course, you will always have your private bedroom. You will have a great time and meet a lot of other students. Staying in a student apartment is the most popular accommodation option in Cusco for mid and long-term stays! If you want something different and know more about the culture of Peru, experience gastronomy, Peruvian traditions, etc. You can also have a unique homestay experience. This will help you practice your Spanish and you will immerse yourself in Peruvian culture. You will have your private room and it includes daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner.


For this volunteer project, we require a minimum of 2 weeks because you work with younger children. The children can get attached to you and it¬īs not to their benefit if you leave after 1 day. The volunteer project also requires a basic level of Spanish. We, therefore, recommend you to take a minimum of 4 weeks of lessons before you start with the project if you don¬īt have a basic level of Spanish. We offer¬†private Spanish lessons in Cusco¬†and¬†group lessons. But you can also choose our special¬†Spanish immersion program¬†with Spanish lessons and all the best activities around Cusco (with of course Machu Picchu on the list)

Volunteering in Cusco is not completely free but almost! The Spanish school asks for a small compensation of $30 to cover the costs. After you arrive in Cusco you will have a personal conversation in which they will tell you more about the volunteering project. You will visit the project together with the school staff. That way you know where it is, how to get there and you will be of course introduced to the people working on the project.

To participate in our Peru volunteer program, there is a minimum of 2 weeks of volunteering and 2 weeks of Spanish lessons mandatory.
