Young person’s care centre volunteering programme – Peru

Our educational programme is very comprehensive, collaborating with various schools for children aged 8-12 years old and young people aged 13-18 years old in the cities of Yanapay and Cusco. The volunteer’s role is to provide teaching assistance and extra-curricular support.
