AMAUTA Volunteer and Internship Programs

Students and Volunteer

The AMAUTA Volunteer Program provides the unique opportunity to live and work in either Peru or Argentina. Volunteers experience the rich, cultural diversity of the country of their choice while developing their Spanish skills. This unique opportunity allows volunteers to contribute to society and bridge the gap between foreign visitors and locals.

AMAUTA works with many local charity projects, and each volunteer may choose both the field and preferred location of his or her placement. Possible fields of interest include social work, education, medical, tourism, and cultural work. Placement sites include orphanages, schools, hospitals, nursing homes, and projects for street children. While most of the projects take place in main cities, there are also projects located in rural areas.

For every volunteer a project receives, AMAUTA also helps with financial support by purchasing various items such as medical supplies, food, infrastructure improvements, or educational materials. All volunteer programs include four weeks of Spanish study followed by your volunteer work experience. Each program has a different commitment time frame, and specialized skills are not necessary. We only ask that each volunteer is motivated to help the people these projects work to support.

Likewise, the Internship Program provides an opportunity to gain valuable work skills in a variety of fields. This program is especially designed for students and recent graduates who are looking for a challenging working experience abroad.

Support Offered by AMAUTA

InternshipsAMAUTA offers professional and constant support that guarantees successful participation in our volunteer programs in South America.

Working and living in another country can be quite a challenge at times. Therefore, it is important to have the support of an organization with years of experience. In addition to arranging volunteer work, AMAUTA can also help you with your Spanish classes, accommodation, cultural activities and excursions. This allows you to relax and enjoy your time in South America.

Before you begin your project, you will receive an information package, and you will receive an information package with preliminary information regarding the volunteer work experience. AMAUTA also organizes an introduction workshop about cross-cultural experiences and about the differences and social hierarchy of South American society.

Before you start volunteering, you will have the opportunity to discuss the goals and desired outcomes of the volunteer placement with our bilingual volunteer coordinator. There are also weekly volunteer meetings, which enable volunteers to talk generally about their experiences and raise any concerns.

Procedure

We’ll need your resume, desired placement (three choices) and a motivation letter. When organizing your placement, we consider the student's personal goals, level of Spanish proficiency, prior work experience and length of probable commitment, as well as the needs of the host organization. When the volunteer organization agrees on the placement, we'll send confirmation of the student's voluntary work (placement document). The final decision regarding the acceptance of a student in a project will be taken by the organization.

Included in the volunteer package are:

  • A Spanish Course including accommodation of your choice
  • Accommodation in one of our student flats during volunteer work
  • Organization and mediation procedure of volunteer work
  • Information package upon arrival
  • Participation in AMAUTA Student Activities (e.g. lectures, dance class)
