Within the city of eternal spring stand beautiful colonial churches and pre-Inca archaeological sites, surrounded by mountains and one of the best surfing beaches in all of Latin America. 

HOW the program WORKS


You will live in 2-3 bedroom apartments with private rooms. You have access to a workspace with high-speed internet. All of our apartments also have high-speed internet, and backup internet. 

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.  

Volunteer Placement

In Trujillo, we will match you with a personalized volunteer opportunity. Choose from a range of opportunities that include teaching, animal care, public health, environmental education, small business consulting and non-profit development. We will also coordinate visits to various volunteer sites, so that you will also have the opportunity to view the work of other participants. 

Cultural Immersion

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.
