Experience the sights and sounds of this microcosm of South America Mountains, jungles, beaches, ancient ruins and the Galapagos Islands are just a few of the most sought-after destinations in Ecuador. Wandering cobblestone streets and exploring 17th-century monasteries can give you some insight into the complex history of this beautiful land. Ecuador's natural and cultural diversity and ancient Inca heritage appeal to many volunteers.

United Planet is the US and Canadian member of the International Cultural Youth Exchange, or ICYE. As a volunteer in Ecuador, you will be hosted by VASE, ICYE's Ecuadorian partner organization. VASE is a nonprofit that is committed to promoting global citizenship and fostering social support in Ecuador through volunteerism.

Possible volunteer projects include:

- Working in elementary and high schools, assisting with various subjects
- Organizing activities at the schools, such as a soccer team
- Helping organizations that focus on children from a variety of disadvantaged backgrounds including supervising play and activities
- Assisting organizations in fundraising and workshops
- Supporting families from poorer areas through reintegration and counseling
