Figure out the best way to get from Central to South America, when you should book your accommodations for Carnaval and local language school recommendations. If it's on South America, it's in this forum.

We are looking for some volunteering opportunities in South America (Peru or Chile) and came across these two organizations: Traveller Not Tourist (in Arequipa) and Aldea Yanapay (in Cuzco). Curious to know if anybody has had some experience volunteering with them and would like to learn more about the experience.

Appreciate any insights! And if you've had some good volunteering experience with other organizations, we'd love to hear about them too.

Have you checked out this site:

I'm not personally a fan of volunteering through a placement agency. I'd rather give the money directly to the organization I'm volunteering with. Plus I've heard too many horror stories from both volunteers and organizations (though not about the two you mentioned specifically). Personally I just usually find a place when I'm on the ground but if you don't have time, arranging in advance is your best bet.

have fun!
