Work: If you are interested in working hand to hand with other local and foreign volunteers in a community in Peru, to develop different activities such as workshops in music, dance, painting, theater, and teaching English to children and youngsters in Piura Peru, this project is for you! The aim of this project is to provide alternatives for children and young people on how to use their free time in positive activities and help them to develop new skills as a complement in their education, and contribute with the local community as they don’t have the economic resources to hire English teachers to teach the children from the community of Piura. If you want to participate for more than 1 month, you can apply for more than one project to extend your stay with children and young people of Piura.
