Maximo Spanish Classes
Submitted by Madi - Redlands | October 22, 2016
I took about 10 months worth of Spanish classes with Maximo Nivel. One of the best decisions I have ever made! Amazing, supportive staff with good classes. My classes we very personalized and most of my teachers rally worked to get to know me as a student and as a person. I could not more highly recommend the classes I had through Maximo Nivel!

I had the opportunity to volunteer with Dr. Angel Soto in San Lucas, Guatemala (just outside of Antigua). Dr. Soto was one of the nicest and most caring dentists I have ever encountered. Although I speak only broken Spanish, he made it so easy to to communicate. This hands-on experience is one I will never forget.
San Judas orphanage
Submitted by Kelsey Witzling - Antioch University New England | October 22, 2016
I had a great time volunteering with Maximo Nivel! Everyone was very helpful, and wanted to make sure that our experience was worthwhile. I traveled to Peru to learn about child development in a cultural context as part of my graduate program in dance/movement therapy and counseling, and my time there greatly impacted my learning. I would love to see more psychology students volunteer through Maximo Nivel to enhance their learning and bring programs to the girls in orphanages.
Volunteering in Cusco
Submitted by Sarah - Denver United States | October 20, 2016
I have zero experience in construction, ZERO. But Daja put me right in my place the first day we were in Cusco getting briefed on our volunteer project, "What's the most important thing you need to come to your job with: eagerness". I came to work each day ready to work and ready to help, and I left each day feeling content and overwhelmed with joy. I really didn't know very much spanish either, but again, come with eagerness, come with excitement for the new experience, and any human can accept and respect that.
I would recommend anyone, and everyone, to experience something like this. I could only manage to take 7 days out of my busy schedule to help...but if you have more freedom, then take more time. This will not be the last time I experience such a wonderful and fun project. I can thank Maximo Nivel, and Build Abroad for coming together to create such an inspirational trip.
Be prepared for anything and everything; just a few words to highlight our time in Peru:

Volunteer Cusco, Peru
Submitted by Amanda Scott - Antioch University | October 20, 2016
I cannot say enough about the amazing experience I had in Peru. It started out rough because I experienced altitude sickness, but the care I was shown by Maximo Nivel and the wonderful man who ran our home was amazing! I was able to see so many breath taking sites and meet so many amazing people. I volunteered with adolescent girls and they were an absolute joy! I would highly recommend this trip to anyone! I would love to be able to go back!!
