Vive Peru heps organize volunteer internships for students abroad in the areas of Social Work, English Teaching, Music Teaching, Engineering and Clinical Medicine, located in Northern Peru. Interns work directly with Peruvian staff and gain valuable professional experience as well as give back to communities in need. Interns live with host families for the duration of the program, and thus are able to have an enriching cultural experience, must use Spanish to communicate, as well as grow as professionals in their understanding of their field of interest. In the past two years, we have had the privilege of working with students from prestigious universities such as Stanford University, Northwestern University, the University of Michigan and the University of Notre Dame. We currently have a partnership with the University of Notre Dame, who sends students on our summer program every year through the Kellogg Institute of International Studies. You can see the link to our program at http://kellogg.nd.edu/students/internship/latinamerica.shtml, under "VivePeru".
Through these volunteer internships, students gain international and professional experience while the hosting organization is able to support development in the region. In the past 4 years, 412 university students from across the country have joined us to donate 45,380 volunteer hours and outreach programs to communities in need in Peru. At local medical campaigns on the coast and in the Andes, we have attended to 3,776 patients with medical consultations and medications. Vive Peru is a nonprofit organization with 501(c)(3) status dedicated to fostering understanding of Latin American and Peruvian culture and providing much-needed aid to Peruvian communities. We work to promote cultural understanding and implement innovative and self-sustainable programs in the areas of health, education, music, social work and engineering.
It’s a life-changing opportunity that challenges students to grow both personally and professionally. The application deadline is February 28th, 2015 at noon PST. Applications are available on our website at www.viveperu.org/apply.php. To learn more about the experience, visit us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/viveperu or online at www.viveperu.org.
