Program Description

Split Gap Year Opportunity in Peru and Brazil!

This is an amazing opportunity to take full advantage of your gap year experience by spending half the year volunteering in Peru and half the year volunteering in Brazil, while supporting 2 fantastic NGO’s and the local children, families and communities they serve. Alternatively, volunteers have the flexibility to volunteer between 3 to 6 months in each location and they also have the option of travelling home or someplace else in between their volunteer time in Peru and Brazil.

Otra Cosa Network (OCN) is an NGO located on the northern Pacific coast of majestic Peru and ETIV do Brasil is located on the Atlantic coast of beautiful Bahia, Brazil. Both NGO’s are situated in lovely coastal towns with great surf and a strong fishing industry, and both offer meaningful volunteer opportunities that will allow you to gain valuable career skills and an experience of a lifetime!


Send us an inquiry for more details about the Gap Year we are offering in Brazil and Peru.


If you are interested in going to Peru first, please apply through OCN’s website at www.otracosa.org. Meanwhile, if you are interested in going to Brazil first, please apply through ETIV’s website at www.etivdobrasil.org.

OCN and ETIV require that volunteers work at least 4 hours a day or 20 hours a week (usually Monday through Friday), and after applications have been received and accepted, we both require a non –refundable 20% down payment that will go towards the cost of your volunteer experience. Since most volunteers only work part time, this allows ample time to enjoy the beach, sand and surf as well as all the nearby events and attractions.
