Program Description

Volunteer on a Community Service Project in Ecuador, South America.

Community development is one of the most diverse and rewarding volunteering experiences. Volunteers from all over the world are needed to help in a huge variety of community services across Ecuador in order to improve the living conditions for the citizens of these communities. We, at ELEP Volunteer & Internship Programs are committed towards making a truly positive impact on the lives of others and a real difference in local communities at a grassroots level.

ELEP Volunteer & Internship Programs is a non-Governmental, non-political and non-profit organization that provides voluntary service to disadvantaged and marginalized communities in rural and urban areas of Ecuador.

Our community development volunteer projects include: children welfare, teaching/education, general conservation, animal welfare, sustainable agriculture, building/construction, HIV/AIDS, human rights, legal aid, micro-enterprise, micro-credits, community and ecological tourism, health care, veterinary medicine, elderly care, sports coaching, etc.

If you are looking for a rewarding and meaningful volunteer opportunity and have an interest in community aid volunteer service, then you are invited to live and work side-by-side with local people and share the goals of a community that warmly welcomes you. Our community development volunteer projects are custom-designed for all ages and backgrounds.

Immerse yourself fully into the culture and lifestyle of Ecuador while volunteering with local communities and those in need. This will allow you to understand what it means to be a volunteer and the importance of helping others.

Restrictions: None. Our volunteer project is available for individuals, families, groups, associations, clubs, high school or college students, etc.

Ages: 18 years old and over. Children under 18 need the consent of a legal guardian and children under 15 are accompanied by an adult.

Start Dates: Our community volunteer project is available all year round and interested are welcome to volunteer at any time of the year (winter, spring, summer or fall, etc.)


- The most meaningful, rewarding, fun and varied volunteer opportunities possible.
- Volunteer opportunities are available during the whole year for individuals and groups
- This is one of the cheapest and most low-cost volunteer opportunities in Ecuador

Everyone can help and make a real difference. No special skills are required to participate in our community volunteer project, only a willingness to share your time and work with community members. Nevertheless, we would like to recommend traveling with an open mindedness, flexibility, a basic knowledge of Spanish and dynamism.
