Overview

United Planet offers volunteer opportunities in 30+ countries, immersing you in local culture as you do your part to create a global community.

 

This group Quest immerses you in Peruvian culture alongside a United Planet staff member to provide guidance and 24/7 support. 

The two-part program combines a team-building and leadership development workshop in New Hampshire with volunteer work in Peru at a local non-profit that supports children’s development. What makes this experience special?

Group workshops and volunteering.

You’ll have the chance to bond with your fellow volunteers before you even leave the United States. You’ll spend three days in New Hampshire training together so that you are already a cohesive team when you arrive in Peru.

Personalized Spanish lessons and community immersion.

There’s no language requirement for this program, but you’ll live with host families in the local community and attend language classes when you arrive to make your transition into Peruvian culture smooth.

Authentic cultural activities and tours of historical sites.

You’re here to volunteer, but also to learn! Do you know how to dance a salsa? Have you ever tasted cuy? You might do both of these things on this trip.

A two-day Machu Picchu visit

Experience breath-taking Machu Picchu, the seat of the ancient Incan empire, up close and personal.
