A typical day description depends on the volunteer´s experience. According to each volunteer, they will perform volunteer work at the local clinic for 3 hours a day. This is a minimum requirement. If desired, volunteers can work 5-6 hours. Afterwards, for another 1-2 hours, they will be located in a middle or high school (this option is decided by the volunteer), where they perform medical campaigns to students.
The rest of the day they can enjoy the beach, improve their spanish, or any leisure time at the volunteer house. We do offer all touristic activities.
Every weekend they will have a different option for volunteers to have a good time and experience a different activity that Northern Peru has to offer. For us, it is essential that volunteers have fun and feel happy while helping and participating in our programs.
