Summary

NGO Volunteering in Latin America

The Internship:
We work with a variety of first-class NGOs in numerous fields including: displaced people, the government, children, education, the environment, housing & abuse. Our partners include the largest NGO in Latin America, Techo.

Crucially, we are able to offer a wide variety of rewarding roles with zero Spanish language requirement. Many of the NGO workers speak very good English enabling us to make this a wonderful opportunity for even non-Spanish speakers.

Throughout the internship you will have an internship supervisor who will provide regular feedback and ensure the internship is a rewarding learning experience. All supervisors are experienced in receiving international interns.

You can expect to learn:
• The challenges facing Colombia
• The workings of a great Latin American NGO
• How to conduct oneself in a working environment, in the context of a different culture & language - a skill much sought after by employers worldwide!
• A thorough understanding of the specific sector you are allocated to according to your skills & interests

Due to local visa regulations it should be noted that these internships are learning, educational experiences and therefore unpaid.

Who is it for:
University students/graduates/postgraduates with a keen interest in the voluntary sector..

This includes thorough pre-trip information, a welcome package on arrival including mobile phone with key support numbers, airport pick-up, safety orientation & ongoing assistance throughout your stay.
