Volunteer in Latin America

Whether you want to help build healthy communities in South America or get involved with a conservation project in Central America, there are many volunteer projects out there just waiting for travellers like you!

Student Flights helps you find safe volunteer work opportunities, and helps you sort out visas, travel and accommodation.

Some suggestions of volunteer work overseas in Latin America are below, but these are only a taste of the awesome opportunities available to you.

Costa Rica:

Sea Turtle Conservation - This is a great opportunity to get involved in preserving this amazing endangered species and gain an insight into marine biology. You will be cleaning beaches in preparation for the nesting season, taking part in regular beach patrols, monitoring nests and recording turtle activities. Some activities will take place during the night.

Galapagos Islands:

Conservation Work - This project is centred around protecting habitats, planting trees, eradicating invasive species, maintaining areas of natural beauty and agricultural activities. The project is dedicated to the research, conservation and management of ecologically important habitats, as well as environmental education and community development. You'll be living and working in a reserve in a rural and tranquil part of San Cristobal Island.


llama Experience - On this Peruvian adventure you will spend your time working with a llama conservation project in the gorgeous Andes Mountains. You will learn to weave llama wool and also be involved with feeding and caring for the animals.

Rio, Brazil:

Coach Soccer - This project aims to promote recreational games and healthy competition between the children, giving them something positive to focus on. The project gives children something to look forward to as well as keeping them fit and healthy. It does'’t matter if you’re not blessed with natural talent because just as valuable as the sport itself is the daily contact with native English speakers and the chance to experience an exchange of cultures.
