Friends from around the world
Connect with other participants at your homestay or the program support office in Cusco. Social activities are offered each week.
You’ll learn about local social dynamics in your placement area, and then have the chance to contribute to the English language learning of local learners.
Welcoming host family
You’ll have a key to come and go as you please, and breakfast and dinner provided each day. Rooms are shared, with the option of a private room upgrade.
Friendly, bilingual support staff
You’ll have access to the volunteer coordinating staff seven days a week to talk about any challenges, travel plans, or other logistics. The support centers offer free WiFi, coffee, or just a place to hang out or use as a meeting point.
Chance to improve your Spanish
Take two hours of group Spanish lessons each day at a small additional cost. Group sizes are kept intentionally small to maximize personal support.
Cusco is a great leaping off point for treks in the Sacred Valley or to Machu Picchu. You can also explore Incan ruins, Spanish colonial architecture, and enjoy many enticing restaurants in the city!
