Intern & Volunteer in Peru
In Peru, many indigenous descendants live in poverty. By volunteering in Peru, you’ll be helping local organisations contribute to local communities driving change and sustainable innovations to their environment. Work together with communities through marketing internships, public health and wellbeing, social work or environmental agriculture.
Peru boasts incredible natural landscapes, in addition to the iconic Machu Picchu. The Manu Biosphere Nature Reserve is one of the largest natural, protected areas in the world, boasting more than 1,000 species of birds. Join one of our conservation projects in the heart of the rainforest that aims to help preserve nature and support action against climate change.
When you volunteer in Peru you can spend your weekends exploring the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, one of the New 7 Wonders of the World. Consider adding extra time to your trip and journey to Trujillo, near the coast. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the archaeological site of Chan Chan and get a glimpse into the way of life during the Chimú culture.
As a volunteer in Peru, you may be based in Cusco which was once the capital of the Inca empire. Here you can visit the 16th-century cathedral, find yourself caught up in the many local fiestas and get a taste of local cuisine. Though Cusco is a tourist hub, you will get the chance to practice Spanish and hear a range of dialects spoken by local people while volunteering in Peru.
