For those wanting a special and unique way to volunteer over Christmas, the Holiday Experience provides the opportunity to participate in a variety of projects and activities in the local community. The project was designed by our local team as an alternative to the standard projects which have frequent public holiday closures over the Christmas and New Year period.
Volunteers on the Holiday Experience project assist in a range of tasks, such as coordinating holiday parties for underprivileged children and the elderly, assisting in the daily life and work of a nearby Andean village (such as cooking, weaving, farming) and renovating a local community center. With such a range of tasks at hand, you’ll need to be open to contributing wherever your help is required.
Please note, in 2019, this project is only available to volunteers who begin on the weeks starting the 23rd and 30th of December. If you want to continue on the program beyond these weeks, you can switch to another project.
The Holiday Experience project requires an extra cost of $75 per week for the supervision, materials and logistics involved, which will be included in the program fee quoted to you by IVHQ when you apply.Apply now
