Qualifications

UBECI is an organization that strongly relies on the support of volunteers from all over the world and we are open to all people willing to dedicate their time to social work. We accept volunteers of all ages, minimum being 18 years old. Volunteers can start working all year round. The minimum time commitment usually is one week. We work with individual and groups of volunteers, universities, highschools, churches, partner organizations.

Normally, our volunteers work full or half-day in a project of their choice. In addition to that, the preparation and planning of the work in the projects is another part of their task. Some volunteers use their time to take Spanish classes, if needed. During the weekends, volunteers can travel around the country and get to know the immense scenic and cultural diversity of Ecuador.

Volunteering with UBECI offers our participants a very special experience by getting into contact with the Ecuadorian people and becoming deeply involved in their way of life.
