The music program was one of the first initiatives of this lively and vital organization. They offer all sorts of activities all over town for underprivileged and marginalized kids, some of them living on the streets, but the music-school and the small recording studio in the west of the city is the heart of their music program. They offer classes in piano, guitar, bass, percussion instruments, Bolivian folklore instruments, singing, music theory and songwriting classes. The goal is to offer young people a creative way for sharing their stories, hopes, and dreams with the public and there is a small recording studio they can use under professional supervision. Their work has earned them respect and recognition from top music professionals in the region and they are always in need of volunteers with a musical background.
Possible tasks: Teaching children and adolescents how to play instruments, compose and record songs, organize and promote concerts, produce album art, etc.

"Be the change you want to see in the world" - Mahatma Gandhi - It may sound naïve, but we actually believe that volunteering can change the world for the better. Acts of solidarity, global learning and intercultural exchange break down borders that exist between cultures and in your own mind. Anyone who has ever worked in another country, who has given his time and energy to a good cause, knows that this can be an unforgettable experience, even a life changing moment. Your own impressions and the ones you leave in others, the learning experiences on both sides, bring the world closer together.
Beyond South America is a small nonprofit agency in Cochabamba, Bolivia. It all started in 2012 with a few volunteer positions at "Casa de la Alegria", a foundation that provides therapeutic workshops to youth- and childcare projects in and around Cochabamba.
We are still a small, familiar organization but have grown over the years and by now have partnerships in Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador, and Guatemala. We are looking for enthusiastic, open-minded and skilled volunteers for a wide variety of positions in our handpicked projects.
The staff of Beyond South America have all lived their own lives of voluntary work all around the world, so we understand the needs of volunteers, their concerns and wishes. We also care about our collaborating organizations, we offer only sustainable projects, that guarantee safety and on site support for our volunteers.
We try to combine the needs of projects and volunteers with our work and work towards finding the right project for volunteers and the right volunteer for the projects. Therefore, we want to get to know you, learn more about your background, your abilities, desires and fears, in order to propose suitable projects to you.
Check out our vacancies and please note, that ALL the profit of Beyond South America still goes to the Foundation "Casa de la Alegría" supporting and sustaining their work. So volunteering with Beyond South America means, you contribute directly to a good cause, bettering the lives of children in Bolivia.
