The community in Oxapampa has highlighted English language skills as an area of growth that’s important to them. This is because being fluent in conversational English creates greater opportunities for more community members to succeed in a career in Peru’s booming tourism sector.
Because of this, local communities in Oxapampa are keen to accept English-speaking volunteers in Peru to support the teaching of English to local children.
It is important to note that school holidays in Peru run from the middle of December to the middle of March, with another two-week winter break usually at the end of July till the beginning of August. So if you are planning to volunteer in Peru during this time you will take part in alternative activities such as coming up with fun Summer school programs for school children, or reforestation initiatives.
Depending on the needs of the community and on the time of your participation in the program, you might get involved in a range of activities such as supporting community associations related to rural tourism in business topics or providing English and environmental workshops, facilitating English lessons for professionals looking to work in the tourism sector, or supporting local business owners and entrepreneurs with creating more sustainable businesses. Volunteers might also get involved in environmental initiatives such as seasonal reforestation, invasive vegetation removal and environmental education workshops at local schools.
Participate in locally led sustainable development initiatives in communities surrounding Oxapampa and on the grounds of our partners CDS. Work to support the goals of local youth and women as well as other community members. In the process, learn about how we can identify the most important needs of the communities including sustainable initiatives and prototypes helping to protect the cloud forest and its habitat.
