Teach English to kids, teens & adults who may be struggling with economic challenges. Learning English can help as a way out of poverty. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Alter 18+
Alleinreisend
Pärchen
Gruppen
50+

Sadly with poverty and homelessness in Cuzco, not all children or adults have access to quality education. This program aims to provide a caring and nurturing space for volunteers to assist children, teens and adults with their studies so they can gain confidence in their abilities and go on to improve their quality of life. 

English Teaching in Peru is an incredible way to give back to the local community.  Cuzco is a major South American tourist hub and as such the students are very much aware of the importance of English speaking and writing skills for their career opportunity.   For this reason, most are very eager to learn which makes for a full filling experience for international volunteers. 

You will be creating daily lesson plans, teaching classes, one-on-one tutoring, and creating educational games and activities for your students. You may also work in other activities such as cleaning and fixing up the teaching areas.

You may also be provided with a crash course in teaching English as a Second Language (ESL), which provides you with basic theories and strategies to effectively teach ESL. You will also have access to materials for your lessons.  If you would like a more in-depth course before you leave,  check out this TEFL accredited course, which can give you the confidence for the classroom. 

International volunteers do not require any teaching background, however qualified teachers and/or TEFL accredited teachers are highly regarded.

Freizeitaktivitäten

Machu Picchu Baby!

Built somewhere in the 1400's, this is the site of massive significance spiritually & historically to the Incan people .  Tourists from around the world travel to Peru just to see it, and Cuzco is the gateway to Machu Picchu.   We can help you book your tour in advance or when you arrive in Cuzco.   There are various options including train ride + hike or a 4 day hike.   Book in advance to ensure you get a spot though!

Cuzco
The historic capital of the Inca Empire, rests at very high altitude in the Andes Mountains.   It's really one of the most sought after travel destinations in the world.   Besides just soaking up the atmosphere of Cuzco, some sights to visit include; Cristo Blanco monument offers amazing views of the city, the Planetarium provides Incan history, the ruins of Qorikancha, in the heart of the city or for the foodies, check out the Choco Museo for everything chocolate!

Moray, Maras And Salinas
These are incredible Incan ruins with many levels of concentric circles like an ancient amphitheater.   This is located only a short bus ride from Cuzco with a nice 4km hike to get to the Maras village and a further 9km hike or taxi to the Moray ruins.   A brilliant day out. 

Amazon Jungle
Peru has managed to do a great job in protecting the Amazon, and has many well protected very large forest areas where you can explore with a guide.   Take a boat down the Rio Tambopata river, experience jungle lodges from Peurto Maldonado and experience one of the most bio diverse regions in the entire world!  

Lake Titicaca
The largest lake in South America, is the birthplace of the sun according to Andean legend.  The town of Puno is a great base with cool local culture and nightlife also with various ruins sights scattered around the islands.

Abholung vom Flughafen Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport

Complimentary Arrival Transfer.  You’ll arrive at Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport (CUZ).   When clearing immigration it’s best to simply state ‘tourism’.    When you arrive you will be greeted by a member of our local team and taken to the homestay or the volunteer center for orientation.In-Country TransportationMost volunteers will use in-expensive bus transport to get around and to travel to the project placements.  Our coordinators will assist you with all the details while in country. A one-way trip rarely costs more than US $0.50 in Cuzco or nearby neighborhoods and maybe US $2 for longer distances. Taxis are also readily available in and around Cusco. Taxis cost approximately US $3 – $10 depending on duration.  We recommend using formal taxis that use a meter to calculate the fare based on time and distance.

Unterkunft

Your accommodation will be in home Stay’s with middle class Peruvian families in Cuzco.  You’ll likely be placed centrally or approx 10-15 min walk to the central volunteer & training center.   You can request to either share with other volunteers or have a private room in the home stay.   For shared rooms, you’ll normally share with 1-3 other volunteers of the same gender and age group.

All host families are very experienced in hosting international volunteers and go through a rigorous process to ensure very high quality standards are met.  (See below pictures of typical houses).  These homes have electricity, western style toilets, running water, bed linen & basic amenities such as clean drinking water.    Hot showers are less common however!

You’ll be provided a key to the house and are free to come and go as you please while being respectful of the house rules of the family.  WiFi is available at some home stay’s however most volunteers will purchase a data plan for cheap to be used with their own device as required.  Most families are happy to help with laundry, but you should expect to pay around US $2 per load if going to a local laundry service.
