By working closely with local people, volunteers will make a positive difference in the lives of Bolivians in Cochabamba and its surrounding areas. Opportunities include contributing to the development and implementation of one of Sustainable Bolivia’s projects, or placement within one of our partner affiliate non-profits. All of our volunteer placements match individual skills and interests to local needs in order to provide the most rewarding experience. Volunteers can contribute in a range of areas such as child and adult education, physiotherapy, orphan care, environmental conservation, healthcare, housing construction, and much more. Additionally, we provide various internship opportunities as well as institutional support for research projects. No matter what the individual project, through the forging of new friendships and experiences, you will gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of Bolivia and her people.

Long Term Volunteers (Internships)

These volunteers are individuals who can stay in country for a period of one month or longer. Since some institutions require long time commitments (due to considerable training periods), most of our volunteer positions are only available to long term volunteers. Personal advantages for these volunteers include the opportunity to develop deeper relationships with members of the community and the ability to truly see the merit of one’s work. Additionally, volunteers will benefit professionally as they develop new skills, improve their language abilities and gain cross-cultural experience. All long term volunteers are also considered interns and, if desired, will receive a letter of recommendation upon successful completion of their stay. Yet, despite all of these personal and professional advantages, it is the Bolivian people who stand to benefit the most from the work of these individuals.

Short Term Volunteers

Unfortunately due to work, school or financial constraints, many volunteers do not have the capacity to donate months of their time. With these restrictions in mind, Sustainable Bolivia has developed a range of volunteer opportunities that operate on a short term basis. We will work hard to accommodate all schedules and wants for volunteers who wish to maximize their stay and make a lasting contribution.

What we offer

For all individuals wishing to donate their time, Sustainable Bolivia offers full or part-time volunteer placements, low-cost transport from airport upon arrival, free orientation and city map, as well as 24 hour staff support. Additionally we provide language classes, free internet access, family stay opportunities, private or shared accommodations and reduced travel prices to one of our sustainable ecotourism destinations. We also organize optional social activities in the evening and on weekends.

Prices

We provide all of the above services for only $425 US dollars a month for a shared room, $475 a month for a private room and $525 a month for a homestay. For short term volunteers we offer all of the same services for $150 a week for a shared room, $185 for a private room and $200 for a homestay. We are able to maintain such low prices since, unlike many other volunteer programs, we are a non-profit institution. The primary aim of our volunteer program is to provide individuals the opportunity to learn, travel and contribute in a sustainable manner; not turn a sizable profit.
