Volunteer in Education & Youth Development

Sustainable Bolivia supports local and international volunteers interested in making a lasting impact.  We work hard to arrange a mutually beneficial volunteer experience.

As a volunteer, you have an important role to play in many of the childcare centers, and special needs centers we work with in Riberalta. Whatever your age, skills, experience or level of Spanish, you can make a positive contribution to the lives of children. We welcome volunteers who are on a vacation, career break, gap year, or retired. We only ask for your enthusiasm and commitment towards the project you are going to work on.

Bolivia is one of the least developed countries in Latin America. Orphanages, daycares and care centers lack funding, are often understaff which is why you have a crucial role to play. Volunteers work together with our partner: you can share ideas, come up with educational activities, while being involved in the daily activities of the center with the children and young adults. At some of the centers there is also a need for help with building and fixing up garden areas, buildings, and playgrounds.

Together with local partners, Sustainable Bolivia has various opportunies in education and youth development. SB has 6 partners in the sector of education.

The different positions that we have are the following:
