Just in case it’s not clear already, we’re not an employment or recruitment agency, so please don’t book with us if that’s what you’re looking for. We sell and organise amazing international travel experiences for the purpose of cultural exchange & education. If a trip has a paid work option, this is not mandatory to do and is there as a means to fund your travels only, and no fee is charged by us for this component. All payments you make are for travel and local support services. If you’re still confused, please get in touch.

The beauty of this trip is that your days will be filled with structured volunteer duties. You’ll then have the evenings and weekends to explore however you please. As a rough idea, this is the daily schedule you can expect:
Once you’ve touched down at Quito International Airport, your pre-arranged transfer will take you to your initial homestay accommodation with a local family in Quito. Relax, settle in and get to know the family.
Head to your orientation where you’ll get to meet the project staff and learn about your volunteer duties. You’ll also be provided with information about Ecuador’s culture and handy travel tips.
