More Details

This particular service program is offered in two components- one working on ecological initiatives on the Galapagos Islands and another an add-on service opportunity in Quito, the capital city of Ecuador, working with disadvantaged youth.

Service initiatives in the Galapagos include working to implement ecological initiatives such as removal of foreign plant species, organic farming, production of native and endemic species, reforestation efforts, and production of compost and organic fertilizers.

In Quito, participants will have the opportunity to work in a daycare center located in one of Quito’s most impoverished area, Zambiza Dump. Service initiatives include giving educational support, arts and crafts, serving meals, and taking care of the young children lucky enough to have a space in this educational care facility.

Program fee is $2950 without airfare. To sign up, please respond here or email our Assistant Director of Volunteer Coordination and Program Development, Amanda Mansfield at amanda@brightlightvolunteers.org.
