Support & Convenience
VWI staff will be available 24/7 throughout the program, beginning before participants depart for South America to assist with booking flights, information on visas, vaccinations, etc. In country, staff is available to support for any need.
You will live, work and travel with a group of diverse remote professionals. Each week, in our Huarique Meeting (huarique is a term used for a local hangout or restaurant) participants have a chance to try a new local flavor, and get to know other participants in the program. We’ll discuss our experiences from the week and invite guests from the community to join us.
In Trujillo, we will match you with a personalized project opportunity. We match our Venturers with a project based on the needs of our organizations as well as the skills and interests of each participant. We will also coordinate visits to various partner sites, so that you will also have the opportunity to view the work of your peers.
VWI is your cultural insider. We'll help you dig deeper into Peruvian culture by providing you access to the best local events and by offering weekend trips for the whole group. Together we will travel to cities on the coast and in the sierra of Northern Perú. You will also have the opportunity to learn Spanish through immersion or through Spanish lessons arranged by VWI with a local tutor.
