Optimal Preparation

During your preparation time and your entire stay, our experienced volunteer coordinators can always be reached via e-mail or Skype to quickly answer all of your questions. From the first contact with us, you will receive information brochures regarding important details (e.g. travelling, health, safety, living with a host family, etc.). After your enrollment, you will receive information about your partner organization, contact details of former and current volunteers, information about the history of the respective country and further documents so you can prepare for your volunteer work.

Organization of your Volunteer Work

You choose the country, project, time and length of your volunteer work. We advise you every step of the way and find a suitable project for you. We organize your volunteer work at one of our partner organizations and, upon request, your airport transfer, accommodation and classes at a local language school. We also arrange for a private shuttle to pick you up from the airport and take you to your hotel / hostel or to your host family. This way, you do not have to worry how to get to your volunteer placement or where you will stay on your first night. Central America is an ideal place to learn Spanish, and we offer discounted one-to-one tutoring with a native speaker in local Spanish schools. This way you will learn the language quickly and efficiently. The better you speak Spanish, the more you will gain from your stay in Central America so we are happy to reserve a spot for you in a Spanish school, where we have arranged discounts for our volunteers. Living with a local host family is a great addition to your classes and enables you to learn Spanish more quickly. At the same time, you will become much more familiar with the culture and social conditions of your host country.

Support and Safety

We are there for you: Personally on site in Granada, Nicaragua; through our mentors in other cities and countries; and via our 24-hour emergency phone. We also regularly offer activities and meetings so you can be with other volunteers. As well, your family and friends can talk to us and write to us via e-mail, telephone or Skype.

Certificate

After you have completed your volunteer work, we will issue an official certificate to you. If you need a certificate prior to your travel to Central America, we can issue a provisional certificate to you, after you apply.
