Centre for the development of disadvantaged young adults

Volunteer in Peru : A better future for young adults !

This project deals with the rehabilitation of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds that have encountered problems with the law. The goal is to put these young people back on the right track by spending time with them and offering them hope for a future away from the criminal underworld.

Centre pour jeunes Pérou - Globalong

The centre is located in Cusco, about 25 minutes by bus from the language school.They are all aged from 12 to 20 years. The centre offers them an education and vocational training as well as psychological support, because they often lack confidence and need to feel that there are people who support them and care about their future.
Volunteers who are committed to this placement must be prepared to face the difficult pasts of young people as they have been forgotten or rejected by society. You should never judge or comment on what young people have done in the past. Only their future is important.
