Ecuador Volunteer Quests: Overview
You can make a difference in Ecuador: From 1 week to 52 weeks
What makes a United Planet Quest unique?
United Planet’s Volunteer Abroad programs are 100 % cultural immersion experiences. While you live with a family, you forge bonds and gain insight into the reality of life in another country. While you work in a local, sustainable project, you offer real help to a community in need.
All Quests include:
- Personalized attention and ongoing support from Coordinators
Extensive pre-departure training and in-country orientation
- Local home stays or on-site lodging options
- Optional excursions to the Galapagos or the Amazon
We have no doubt it will be life-changing and provide lasting memories. Read on for more detailed information about volunteer opportunities in Ecuador.
