Teach Program 2016

This year is our third edition of the Teach Program. In this post we want to share with you some of the activities that the students/teachers have been experiencing, and give you more information to apply.

During one month, you will be volunteer teachers in the “Arenitas del Mar” School, at Villa El Salvador District in Lima – Perú. You will also volunteer after classes in the “Deporte y Vida” Program. Both of them are part of the Centro de Eduación y Desarrollo Comunitario (CEDEC) project (

The support you will be giving depends a lot on your own skills. The first days you might start helping the local teachers with their daily tasks, so you get to know the dynamics of the school. This is what the volunteer teachers did in their first week:

Kenzie correcting homework

Sammie making cards for father’s day

Jessie giving support to the english teacher

Colin & Stacey at sports class

Sammie at dance class

Some pics below, and more of them here.



During the weeks, you’ll be asked to elaborate an educational project for the school that can have sustainability in time. You’ll present it to the teachers to get feedback and leave a last version there so it can be applied.

And additionaly to this, you will be taking lessons in one of the most prestigious universities of the country (PUCP University). Take a walk across the campus here.

This year’s schedule looks like this:


And of course in your free time you will be able to experience Lima and other peruvian cities.

Our 2016 volunteers give their opinions about their first week in Lima and the peculiarities of the local culture here.

A great experience is waiting for you! More information in our website:

See you soon!

  1. Living like an university student of Lima

Experience going to one of the most prestigious universities of the country (PUCP University), meeting new friends, and living with a peruvian family. In PUCP university you have a wide variety of classes you can take, depending on your personal and profesional interests. Some of the classes our students chose are these.

This is the campus’ web page: This campus is known by being one of the most pretty campus of the city, take a walk across it here and hear the opinions of our spring LA students about it here. We also prepared a video of a day in the life of a PUCP student in Lima, watch it here.

2. Outdoor and cultural activities

On weekends, we offer our students options of cultural and outdoor activities. For example, an experiential peruvian music class and experiencing adventure sports outside Lima are some of the options. Here you can watch the latest trip to sail on the pacific ocean and swim with sealions, and in this video you can watch the peruvian cuisine class, shared with students of Spelman College. A trip to the great city of Cusco is also included!

On the last week of your stay in Lima, we offer a farewell coctail with families included. This time, some of our students got the chance to go on stage and sing a farewell song. On the other hand, one of the students couldn’t make it to the event but she sent a farewell video for all of her friends. It has a very nice message, watch it here.

3. Experience the peculiar culture of Lima and Peru

There are some special aspects that make Lima and Peru interesting to experience. For example, the transportation system in Lima is a challenge for most of the newly arrived. Opinions and some insights of the transport in Lima here.

Food is a main aspect to have in mind when comming to Peru. Known as one of the best cuisines of the world, you can’t miss the chance to try some of our dishes. Our LA and Spelman students chose their favourite ones.
