Typical Duration of Program
Thousands of miles of serene coasts, diverse dialects of Indigenous languages, home to the infamous Patagonia region, breathtaking Andes Mountains along the entire length of the country, diverse ranges of socio-economic communities and recently recording two out of the five largest earth quakes in the world! Welcome to Chile!
Here you will find countless opportunities to witness the power one can truly make. The aims of all volunteer programs are to promote an improved quality of life while serving as agents of positive change. The many individuals, communities, wildlife, conservation projects and general themes of sustainability are calling for the creative thinker and enthusiastic go-getter!
From earth quake relief, husky farms, resort spas, orphanages for disabled children, work with the elderly, wildlife rehabilitation and conservation centers... there is much to do!
Volunteering in Chile offers the unique experience to see a side of Chile, that most never see, while still being in a safe, modern and politically stable country.
We carefully select all accommodations and make sure that they are located in safe neighborhoods with good infrastructure and public means of transport. Normally, you can also find supermarkets, restaurants, bars and cyber cafes close-by. Furnished apartments in Chile are available upon request as well!
