Let's Go VolunteerOur Volunteer Center


Volunteer Centre

Our volunteers stay in our Volunteer Center. The center is situated in same part of the city as most of our volunteer programs. By living in the same district as the center, volunteers can get a genuine feel for how the families they are helping live on a day-to-day basis.

The city center, bus terminal and nightspots are easily reached by bus or taxi. Our other programs are within walking distance.

Volunteer with Berenice

The Volunteer Center is run by Berenice. She lives there with her two children William and Carolina, as well as with other volunteers in the program. Berenice is the most caring and considerate host you could hope to meet. She is a former chef and looks after everyone with a smile and laugh.

We provide lunch and dinner during the week but ask that people make their own arrangements for breakfast. Our Volunteers have a fully equipped kitchen at their disposal including a separate fridge and weekend meals are usually a group effort. Dietary requirement can easily be catered for but we do ask that you let us know in the comments section, when you fill out the online application.

Central Patio

We have a full range of facilities to help make the stay enjoyable including Computers, Wireless Internet, TV and DVD area, outdoor area, hammocks and laundry. The centre also has a phone to allow friends and family to get hold of you at any time.

Volunteers Bedroom

The sleeping areas have bunk beds and secured closets for volunteers to store their things. There is also a separate bathroom and shower. We would warn volunteers that like the majority of Colombian homes we do not have a hot water supply, meaning the showers are only with cold water. Luckily the warm climate means this is not too much of a problem.

It is amazing to have the chance to live with a local family. It gives you the chance to learn about the differences between the Colombian culture and your own.

I really feel like we were able to "make a difference" if only in the daily life of the kids by providing a healthy hot meal and being affectionate, fun and helpful.

All the children are lovely, polite and have big smiles - quite a contrast to some of the children in the UK who have so much more.

The children were wonderful and I felt like I gained a good insight into the lives of the people in Ibagué
