Contribute to the children's valuable education in an impoverished community! This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Singoli
Coppie
Gruppi
50+

Volunteer English teachers are placed at projects in impoverished communities where students come from low-income families and cannot afford to study at private institutes. Most students are children (of all ages), however we occasionally have placements with projects that teach to adults. Typically classes are held in small community centers, public schools, or churches.

As volunteer teachers, participants have the opportunity to:

  • Create lesson plans or prepare materials in advance
  • Engage in games and cultural activities with students
  • Provide general support for all activities on site

Please note that you do not necessarily teach in front of large classes or in formal classroom settings. Often, teaching is done in one-on-one format or in small groups. If you are asked to teach at a school, you may be assisting a non-native English teacher with their lessons.

You should expect your teaching English project to feel disorganized, understaffed, and underfunded. In fact, this is why they need volunteers! During the orientation before volunteers join your project, Maximo Nivel provides them with materials, books, lesson ideas, and a brief crash course in teaching English to get them started.

Volunteers are always supported by Maximo Nivel’s in-country coordinators but they are not on site at the project every day.

Our projects are located in the Cusco area. Walking or taking the bus is the most effective and cheapest way to get to and from your project. Travel time varies widely from project to project, and volunteers should expect to spend 10-60 minutes traveling each way. Taxis are also widely available. On the first day at the project, volunteers travel on local transport with a Maximo Nivel representative who provides all the necessary information on how to get there and back.

Typical day

Working hours vary according to the needs of the project, but you can expect to work 3-4 hours per day, Monday to Friday, either in the morning or in the afternoon.

Free-time activities

All year round, Cusco and its surrounding towns celebrate a mix of Inca and Catholic holidays, providing visitors with a variety of different cultural activities to experience. Cusco offers travelers a plethora of historical and archaeological sites both in and out of the city. Volunteers most commonly like to explore the Sacred Valley, Lake Titicaca, and of course Machu Picchu. Our local staff also posts a monthly events calendar to let them know of the activities going on around MaximoOur on-site travel partner is very knowledgeable and can assist in setting up trips.
