The community projects in Cusco are varied in nature, but with conservation and community at their core. Whether volunteering with the tree conservation projects, at the dog shelter or finding your inner archaeologist, 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!”

Two community development projects are located in the historical Inca city of Cusco, where volunteers also partake in Spanish classes. Other projects are located outside of the city and will expose volunteers to the beautiful nature, surroundings and people of the Sacred Valley and the Andes mountains.
Volunteers are free in the evenings and weekends, which allow for further exploration of the many cultural sights in Cusco and beyond. Volunteers can join arranged day trips or go explore several of the stunning locations that Peru has to offer such as Machu Picchu, Arequipa, Lake Titicaca, Amazon rainforest and many more on their own.
