VOLUNTEER WORK
In the present globalized world, a feeling of solidarity is growing like a light of hope which shows itself in many ways. There are for example the efforts to join forces to protect the environment; to save children from ignorance and distress; and to lift  communities out of extreme poverty. For this noble reason, Arequipa, like  many cities in Latin America  has had the invaluable help  of foreign friends and institutions that voluntarily work with  abandoned children and  the handicapped, in nurseries, in schools, in health centers etc. Using its experience Ceica Peru Spanish Language School has designed some special programs for those  interested in  learning or  improving their  Spanish and/or  participating in voluntary work. In this web page you will find all the information that you need.
 
 
WHY VOLUNTEERING?
You will improve your natural abilities in a completely different culture. You will learn a great deal from the new situations that you will be met with  in your work place. All of which  will enrich your perception of  life.
You will contribute to the education and  upbringing of children in  schools or in care.
You will discover your strengths and talents. You will develop new abilities that will serve you for the rest of  your life.
You will gain work experience.
In  a cultural exchange,  you will learn about Peruvian culture and we will learn about your country and  life in other countries.

And for those who wish  to improve their knowledge of Spanish, there is nothing  better than practicing it every day at work.
 
 
 
 
REQUIREMENTS FOR VOLUNTEERING
Be at least 18 years old.
Choose the Volunteer Program which is closest to your needs.
Have an open mentality to understand the restrictions that our traditional  conservative culture imposes, for example when you are working wear appropriate clothes (no miniskirts, shorts, low or skimpy tops etc); avoid romantic relationships with the personnel or youths in care.
Obey  the  personnel in charge of your social project.
Behave  morally  in the volunteer work place and  be willing to comply with the norms established by  the institution.
