Which Globalteer projects host families?

Globalteer's community projects in Peru and Cambodia are perfect projects for families, for volunteering with children. Adults can work alongside local staff  in a school setting and can get involved in English, arts and sports classes. Depending on their ages, the children in your family can join the children at the project in suitable classes such as arts, sports and educational games. Older children may be able to help the adults and our local teachers in class.

The projects are also located in safe areas within easy reach of two of the world's most spectacular sights; Machu Picchu and Angkor Wat. Making them the perfect destinations for unforgettable family volunteer vacations; combine valuable service with a truly memorable cultural experience.

Other projects which may be suitable to volunteer with family include the Colombia Community Project.
