A true Peruvian experience

I learned so much while volunteering with Bright Light Volunteers. Not only was I able to help local communities, I was also able to see some famous historical sights and experience their culture. I would 100% go on another trip with the same company, and I would also recommend this company and their opportunities to anyone I know.

Amazing!

It was an amazing experience to see a part of the world I had only learned about in school. Not only were we able to see the touristy parts of each location, but we were immersed with the local people as well which really enhanced our experience.

Life changing -Peru

This was one of the best experiences of my life. Everything was fabulous! I felt that we actually did something to help the community of Maras and they gave so much back to us. Their generosity was incredible. Scott, Andrew and Edwar were excellent! Thank you for this opportunity.

Bethel University and Bright Light Volunteers alternative spring break Peru

As the Director of Global Studies at Bethel University, I have partnered with Bright Light Volunteers on numerous occasions. I have always been pleased with the results. BLV consistently offers interesting, sustainable, responsible volunteer opportunities to me and my students. The BLV staff is second to none: knowledgeable, passionate, and FUN! Highly recommend!

Service project and teaching

Bright Light Volunteers gave me the opportunity to travel to Peru to serve others and to also teach. It was the most amazing experience and I would definitely go back! I also got to see some pretty amazing things and learn about the history and culture of Peru. This trip gave me a whole new perspective on life!
