Volunteer Abroad Scholarship Available

We are excited to share a new opportunity with folks interested in volunteering in Peru.

As our partnership with Expand Peru grows, we have decided to unite our resources in order to best serve our communities. We are currently recruiting volunteers for Expand’s CASA project (Centers for Assistance), a social assistance project that works with children between the ages of six and twelve and their families living in extreme poverty. To help this great project find individuals who are committed to helping children in need,

we are offering a scholarship to one Expand volunteer – covering up to 75% of the Expand volunteer fees – who will dedicate additional time to leading a focused youth group aimed at increasing leadership skills.

In addition to the responsibilities assigned by the CASA project leader, volunteers who receive a Mejor scholarship will be asked to recruit teens to form a youth group and conduct evaluations of their progress and outcomes. We ask that volunteers make a minimum 3 month commitment. Preference will be given to applicants who are proficient in both Spanish and English, who can commit to longer periods of time (6 months to one year), and who have had experience either living abroad or working with teens.

For more information and details on how to apply, please send us an email. We are accepting applications on an ongoing basis and availability will be dependent on MEJORC’s current budget.
