Conversation Corps is a great program for people who want to experience life in Brazil and the Brazilian culture in-depth. The program has a focus on cultural exchange and host families are not only excited to learn English but also love to share the characteristics of their country, culture and cuisine. Volunteer 15 hours each week in exchange for free room and board in Brazil! Weekends are normally free to experience the culture by traveling.
Volunteer in Peru and work on a fascinating project which combines the resurrection of traditional cultural Inca jewellery making techniques with a social initiative in the city of Cusco. Young adults from disadvantaged communities are being given apprenticeships to learn the ancient techniques of their Incan ancestors, providing them valuable skills and an income while ensuring the skill never dies out. The workshop looks to sell the pieces it makes to sustain its work and is looking to attract the tourists in Cusco to see their craft.
