Program overview

Love Volunteers’ work closely with partners in Bolivia to find volunteers to assist in a variety of programs in and around the city of Cochabamba. The volunteer programs primarily focus on helping underprivileged children by teaching and arranging educational and recreational activities which includes football workshops. Volunteers’ contributions improve the lives of kids in the local communities in a sustainable and meaningful way.

Volunteering overseas, which can be challenging, is something you will look back on with pride. Volunteers’ skills and expertise are matched to programs in the host country to help ensure maximum benefit to the local community, while giving the volunteer a satisfying and fulfilling experience.

Living and working in Bolivia gives a rare insight into South American culture. Volunteers interact with other international volunteers, and with the community that they are serving on a day-to-day basis, often making lifelong friends.

For those wishing to learn or improve their Spanish, volunteering in Bolivia provides an excellent training ground for full immersion in the language.
