Volunteering in South America
As a volunteer with Projects Abroad, you will have the chance to explore South America and contribute to meaningful volunteer efforts. You can choose from project locations in Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Argentina. No matter your choice of region or project, you will have an important role to play in disadvantaged communities and your efforts will be a part of long-term change.

Living and Volunteering in South America – What Is It Like?
South America is home to many ancient treasures and ecological wonders. While you do volunteer work in South America, you will also have leisure time allowing you to tour and travel around your assigned region or to other regions. By volunteering with Project Abroad, you will have the opportunity to explore Machu Picchu to better understand the ancient Incas, observe the unique wildlife of the Galapagos Islands, or see the stunning Andean Peaks.
The experience continues from your work and your travels to your living accommodations. Everyone on a volunteer placement with Projects Abroad in South America lives with a host family. You will be welcomed into their home and they will be eager to find out all about you and your life back home. Take plenty of photos with you and be prepared for lots of questions!
