Volunteer work in Quito

The Quito Antiguo Spanish School not only caters for those wishing to study or to travel. In addition, it is an organization that believes in helping our community. If you are interested in voluntary work, for example helping street children, you can do it with us and help change society for the better. The programs are run on a voluntary basis and are free.

All you need to do is come and visit us. The voluntary worker will teach reading and writing and organize and participate in recreational activities. In addition, by signing up with one of our numerous tours you will be helping street children, since a part of the cost of the tours goes to helping them directly.

Thank you for being a part of Quito Antiguo and helping to make a difference.
