Choose from some of the best volunteer programs in South America, unique, rewarding and highly affordable! With your budget in mind, we at Iko Poran have carefully developed inexpensive and exciting projects for your volunteer trip to Latin America! Whether you travel to Peru, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina or Ecuador, fantastic volunteer opportunities are waiting for you.
You can try the volunteer project for free in Colombia and get to know this stunning country. In Brazil, Rio de Janeiro, you can participate in environmental projects, train soccer with the students of a school or teach visual arts and ballet.
If you like nature and indigenous people, try a trip to Ecuador, where you can teach children in an Andean village, or work with environmental conservation in the cloud forest. In Peru you can choose whether you want to work high in the Andean mountains in Cusco or prefer an experience in the Peruvian Amazon region near Iquitos. We offer a wide range of projects, teaching English, immersion with indigenous peoples, crèches and orphanages and even a dental stage. To close the circuit, you can travel to Buenos Aires, Argentina, take care of children, or, a favorite of our volunteers, teach soccer, in one of the greatest countries of this popular sport.
If you are looking to volunteer for cheap, there is nothing better than a free program! Teach English in Ibagué, and explore this fascinating country!
Iko Poran runs it’s own projects in Rio de Janeiro, and therefore is most affordable. The local staff is always available and will guide you through your volunteer experience. Nathan and Lindsey from USA, first went for a volunteer trip to Argentina and worked on a building for a community, and then to Rio, for sports volunteering.
Ming from China never will forget the smiles on the faces of the children at school. She has been teaching English and enjoyed her stay with her host family. There are also environmental projects in the cloud forest available, or you dive into an experience with local arts and crafts, developing your creativity.
In this last chapter, we come back to Nathan and Lindsey who started their trip in Buenos Aires. Read here about the exciting experiences. If you are into football, Argentina is the country! Coach boys and girls at school, and maybe, even discover a new Messi.
