Spirit offers individuals the opportunity to help with a variety of volunteer projects in Ecuador while immersing themselves in the local culture.  If you dream of experiencing the world more deeply than by just being a tourist, our program is a way to live abroad affordably while giving back to the community you live in.

Our partner in Ecuador, Fundación Bolivar Education, is an expert in customizing the experience of every volunteer and matching the skills of each individual to the needs of the local residents. Work side by side with Ecuadorians serving in their communities as well as other volunteers from around the world. Projects are available throughout the year for a minimum of one week and are offered in many different fields.
