Volunteer in Latin America!
Volunteering in Latin America is a great way to learn about another culture and help a local community. Through volunteering with Proyecto Horizonte, volunteers have the opportunity to create lasting change for Bolivian children and for a Bolivian community. The commitment and never-ending work of so many of our volunteers has played a key role in our success so far in Bolivia. There are many ways in which volunteers can contribute to our organisation. You can read about volunteers’ past experiences on the volunteer blog.
Volunteer In Bolivia
Proyecto Horizonte offers a holistic community development approach to Mineros San Juan, Bolivia and its surrounding communities. Any support that volunteers can contribute to the team of permanent employees is greatly appreciated. Volunteer projects can be short-term (minimum 1 month) or long-term and can be based on professional expertise or be general Helping Hand Volunteer work.
As we offer a number of services to the community, there is a wide range of activities in which you can participate. This can include helping with children in the day-care centre, English classes, tutoring, computer classes and helping in the health centre. Even if you have limited or no experience in these areas, your help is still required and appreciated. Volunteering in Latin America can be a very rewarding and helpful experience!
We have a number of special initiatives designed by past volunteers that have become an integral part of our work. Examples of these are: community education workshops, SODIS (solar water disinfection), youth groups and leadership programmes for teenagers. Volunteers are always encouraged to involve themselves in these projects.
Please review our more specific volunteer pages based on your interests, background and available time commitment:
