Cost:
Volunteers must pay for their own expenses, including room and board. We recommend living with one of the families in our host family network. It costs US$80 per week, which includes both breakfast and dinner, plus it’s a great way to practice your Spanish. Most of the families are located fairly close to our office and offer a safe environment. There is also a US$100 program fee, which will be used to assist in covering the costs of transportation for volunteer staff excursions, the political-cultural activities, and administrative costs.

Other information:
This volunteer opportunity can be moulded to fit personal interests. The focus could be on marketing, economic and environmental sustainability, community development through local small businesses, etc. In addition, the time commitment can be adjusted to fit the volunteer. Past volunteers have worked about 40 hours a week, but that need not be the case. Also, as a benefit to volunteers we offer half-price Spanish classes in the weeks before and after your volunteer/internship.
