Long Term Volunteering

 

We are always looking for enthusiastic and energetic people to join us at WindAid.

 

WindAid offers an inclusive 5-week volunteer program during which volunteers build and install a wind turbine and present it for free to a community in Peru.

 

However, if you are a volunteer with more time on your hands WindAid can provide volunteer opportunities. Working with WindAid provides an ideal opportunity for you to gain experience working on sustainable projects, helping encourage conservation and educating people on the benefits of appropriate and renewable technologies.

 

Be it a gap year, sabbatical, career break or simply a change of career you have the chance to be directly involved in making a positive and long lasting difference in the lives of people living in Peru.

 

There are a variety of roles you can fill at WindAid, be it building wind turbines, searching for, meeting and preparing communities for receiving wind turbines or developing and designing appropriate and renewable technologies to be used as alternative energy solutions.

 

The normal working hours for volunteers are 9am - 6pm, Monday to Friday. Proficiency in Spanish is not essential but ability to speak the language will increase your opportunities with WindAid.

The third largest city in Peru, it is located in North Peru and just 10 minutes away from the world famous beach resort of Huanchaco. For those traveling onwards there is easy access via the Pan American Highway North to Mancora and Ecuador or South to Lima, Cusco and Bolivia.
