Global Volunteers – Middle School Community Development in Peru’s Mountain Villages

By Matt Bechtel
May 23, 2018


High up in the mountains where rolling greens lead to snow-capped peaks, you’ll journey into the remote villages surrounding Cuzco. As you explore the heart of Inca civilization, you’ll learn how locals preserve history, art and heritage, while also gaining insight into the challenges they face. Working together with community members, you’ll build long-term solutions to support economic sustainability, agriculture and access to education. As you foster meaningful relationships within the community, you’ll celebrate customs and help empower a village for generations to come. Service Learning projects may include promoting responsible tourism to help support the local economy and conservation efforts, planning community gardens to improve food security, or building trails for local community members. Participants will earn 20 FCPS approved service hours.

Wondering about the educational value, full itinerary, everything that is included, and price of the trip? An opportunity to show your child the world!
