Volunteer Teaching in Cusco Peru

Volunteer teaching abroad and help shape the minds of children in the classroom and make a long-lasting impact on their futures. As a volunteer teaching, you will be assisting a teacher in a class or teaching a subject directly depending on your confidence on the subject. Volunteering in education is for those who are energetic, patient and like to work with children. No prior teaching experience is needed.

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.

 Join our program in Peru focused on teaching English to children. Teach a class yourself with the help of other volunteers or staff at a school or after school program. You may also teach other languages like French or German if you have enough proficiency in them. The program is about 4 hours of work per day Monday to Friday or Monday to Thursday depending on the class schedule.

Volunteers teaching English are based in the beautiful colonial city of Cusco in Peru and travel each day to nearby villages to their assigned school. Other subjects like computer literacy, math and science are also available for volunteers to teach in Peru
