Join us this summer for a once-in-a-lifetime experience on our Project Ecuador program. Experience the joy of volunteering your time while also traveling throughout this beautiful country, participating in fun adventures and exploring the rich, local culture.
The goal of our Project Ecuador program is for our participants to not only give back to the global community but to also learn about themselves and to grow through their experiences. Upon completion of Project Ecuador, each participant will receive a certificate recognizing 40 HOURS of SUMMER COMMUNITY SERVICE. Our projects are designed to create meaningful bonds between our volunteers and those they are helping. Each person volunteers Monday through Friday, four hours per day, while in Quito and the Amazon Jungle.
Our first week in Ecuador is spent living, volunteering, and experiencing all the capital city of Quito has to offer. Weekdays are spent volunteering each morning, participating in fun local activities in the afternoons, and enjoying great evenings throughout this historic city. Our second week is spent in the awe-inspiring Galapagos Islands, traveling throughout the islands learning about this most unique destination. Each day is spent swimming, snorkeling, and hiking our way past exotic animals such as giant tortoises, Galapagos penguins, and Blue-footed Boobies. For our third week we head into the exotic Amazon Jungle. Days are spent volunteering in the morning, participating in adventurous activities in the afternoons, and soaking in the local culture at night.
Project Ecuador is an incredible opportunity to experience the different peoples and cultures of a unique part of the world. You should come to the program with an open mind and positive attitude, excited about new experiences, ready to fully participate in volunteer work and cultural exploration, and willing to challenge yourself to step outside of your comfort zone. Each one of our teenagers is a partner in making our trip through Ecuador a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
