The community projects in Cusco are varied in nature, but with conservation and community at their core. Whether volunteering with the tree conservation projects, or at the dog shelter, volunteers will contribute to important community initiatives in the Cusco region while getting the chance to enhance their Spanish skills.



“For me it really was a great experience. I loved everything about it! The Spanish school was super flexible and everyone was super helpful. The work with the dog shelter was also a lot of fun! I can only recommend this project and Cusco of course, which is an amazing place to start your travels!”
