We are looking for volunteers who can lead our adult evening programs. They include our conversation class for advanced English speakers and our Basic English Class. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Imagine a cool ambiance, students who are laid-back but very willing to learn, a class in which you are the teacher and yet you can still “go with the flow”. This is our Conversation Class Program: adults students that want to learn and have lots of questions and volunteers who not only teach but also learn about their students, themselves, and the culture which hosts them.

Conversation class is held in the evening for adults who do not otherwise have the chance to practice their English skills. An enriching experience for both the local Peruvians who get the chance to practice their English and learn about different cultures and for the volunteers who learn about Peruvian culture and gain new friends in the process.

  • Conversation Class is a space to practice and strengthen the English language among adults.
  • Students have intermediate knowledge of the English language but need to practice it
Basic English Classes are held in the evenings and are aimed at adults who want to learn English.
  • Students are beginners who have a desire to learn English.
  • There is structured study plan to follow.
  • The students are provided materials including a workbook, audios, videos.

Volunteers should be conversationalists who love meeting and talking with new people. They should also be able to guide a conversation and ensure that everyone has a chance to participate. Basic English class leaders should be able to follow a structured lesson plan but also be creative and open to coming up with ideas to respond to student questions/challenge areas.

Monday - Thursdays, in the evening you will lead classes - Conversation Classes are held Mondays and Wednesdays 7:30-9:00pm and Basic English Classes are on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00 - 8:30pm.

We provide pickup from the local airport or bus station upon your arrival. If you would prefer to take a bus to Trujillo, we can arrange a transfer from the airport in Lima to the bus station for an additional cost.


Most volunteers stay at our Volunteer House (the Casa) in Trujillo which is a 10 minute walk from the city center.  The house has hot water (a commodity in Peru), internet access, and kitchen facilities. Señora Carmen, the landlady, will help you practice your Spanish.  We have found that having our volunteers live together makes for an enjoyable and cohesive experience.

We also offer the option of living in a homestay for the duration of your time volunteering with us. Most homestays will have internet access, kitchen facilities, lukewarm water and are located close to the city center. The price listed goes directly to the homestay.
