Education is the cornerstone of development, and yet, many children in Cusco lack access to quality education. This is where volunteer teachers come in. By choosing to teach in Peru, you have the opportunity to impart vital knowledge and skills to these children, setting them on a path to a brighter future. The joy and gratitude in their eyes as they learn new concepts and develop their abilities is an unforgettable experience that will stay with you forever

Volunteering in Peru isn’t just about teaching academic subjects. It’s also about teaching life skills, inspiring confidence, fostering creativity, and encouraging children to dream big. It’s about letting them know that they matter, that they have potential, and that they can overcome the challenges they face.

Volunteering to teach in Peru is also a great way to enhance your skills. Whether you’re a seasoned educator or haven’t taught before this experience will challenge you and help you grow both personally and professionally. You’ll learn how to adapt to different teaching environments, cater to the diverse needs of students, and make the most of limited resources.

English is usually the most taught subject by volunteers as English has certainly become a must-know language to work in many industries. For a lot of people not knowing English becomes an obstacle in getting jobs or missing opportunities to further their education.

Volunteers work in the mornings in the schools, or in the afternoon in after school programs that seek to support children with tutoring, homework and to keep them busy with positive educational tasks. This program works with the Peruvian academic cycle which is from early March to the second week of December. There is also a 1 week break in Easter and a 2 week break in the beginning of August. Volunteers must be proactive and be flexible with their class plans.
