UCB has been working closely with the local community of Jupapina, near La Paz, for the past ten years. Volunteers are placed with various projects including teaching English, working at Mallasa Zoo, helping in a local nursery, supporting at an equine therapy centre and much more.
Additional information: We charge $500 per month to volunteer. However, the vast majority of this money goes towards accommodation costs (volunteers live in very comfortable shared houses with full amenities), plus a 24 hour contact person who ensures that the volunteer placement runs as smoothly and successfully as possible. I hope that this cost will not prevent us from being featured as a ‘low cost’ opportunity on the website.
