You will support kids in the ages of 3 to 18 and teach them about environmental issues, so that they become responsible ambassadors of our nature and society. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Alter 18+

This volunteer project takes place at a cultural and environmental organization that was founded back in 2011 in the town of Pisco Elqui, which is part of the beautiful Coquimbo region in the north of Chile.

The organization aims to develop values and mindsets regarding social and ecological responsibility among young children. This to make sure the new generation grows up with a high level of environmental and social consciousness, striving to protect our fragile planet.

The mission of the organization is to support children and teenagers between the ages of 3 and 18 and to teach them about environmental issues, so that they become responsible ambassadors of our nature and society.

The role of the organization plays into the development of concepts, techniques, and values regarding the environment that the children and teenagers can implement into their normal family lives. 


Environmental education has gained tremendous importance in Chile in recent years and has now become an integral part of the curricula of many schools and even kindergartens, especially in the big cities. Due to the exceptional geography, there are many regions in Chile that are particularly sensitive to environmental damage and climate change. Droughts are increasing in the northern and central regions of the country.

It is therefore very important to educate future generations to use the environment and natural resources responsibly. This is very important, especially in these sensitive regions and especially in the countryside, where formal education is often not as good as in the metropolitan areas.

Here you can make a valuable contribution to making children from a rural area fit for the future with a lot of fun, so that they are not left behind and may even become multipliers in their region later.

Your tasks can include:

  • Supporting different program areas (sports activities, nature trips, workshops, vegetable garden, environmental education, etc.)
  • Supervising the children
  • Helping with planting the orchards and greenhouses with the children
  • Art projects (music, dance, painting, theater, etc.)
  • Promoting local crafts
  • Assistance in the areas of "eating and healthy living" and "environmental awareness" (sports activities, waste separation, recycling, etc.)
  • Project designs for the further development of the organization
  • Developping your own ideas to keep the children busy
  • English lessons (not always offered)
  • Ecotourism (not always offered)

Note: The tasks may vary. They depend on factors such as number of volunteers, weather, season, current needs of the project, as well as self-motivation. Not every volunteer may be fully involved in all these tasks.


The small town of Pisco Elqui, where the project takes place, is a village in the idyllic Elqui Valley, in the Coquimbo region approx. 450 km north of Chile's capital Santiago and approx. 100 km east of the beautiful coastal town of La Serena.

Thanks to the irrigation management with water from the Rio Elqui, papayas, figs, chirimoyas, apricots, peaches and grapes grow here.

Pisco Elqui is a popular travel destination for Chilean tourists due to its beautiful location in an Andean valley, the many Pisco distilleries, the extremely clear starry sky and year-round sunny weather, as well as the former home to Gabriela Mistral, Nobel Laureate in Literature.

The beaches of La Serena and Coquimbo can be reached in one and a half to two hours and are therefore ideal for a weekend trip.

The climate is semi-desert-like, so it hardly rains and if so, in the winter months (June-August). The temperatures are pleasant during the day and hot in summer (December to February), it cools down noticeably at night, so you should plan for suitable clothing and lots of sun protection.
