Peru is a magical country where modern life blends into the mysteries of the past at the ruins of Machu Picchu and in the traditions of the indigenous people. When you volunteer in Peru, you’re bound to have the experience of a lifetime!
From the skyscrapers of Lima soaring high above the Pacific coast to the quiet beauty of Cusco, doorway to Machu Picchu, Peru is a country that should be seen at least once in your life, and going on a gap year is the perfect excuse. Volunteer as an English teacher, at animal shelters, at homes for the elderly or the poor, at health clinics or at after-school programs, all while in full Spanish immersion. You’ll never forget your volunteer program in Peru!
