Volunteer with The Peace Project in Laguna de Apoyo!

"Supporting and strengthening the beautiful and unique community of Laguna de Apoyo"

This is the Deal

The Peace Project is located in the beautiful nature reserve of Laguna de Apoyo. The small community enjoys one of the cleanest lakes in Nicaragua, an abundance of wildlife, and a safe environment. However, the people have limited educational and job opportunities, and many families struggle to support themselves.

The Project provides English instruction, peace education, and tutoring for local youth to help equip them with skills they'll use to succeed. And we always need more volunteers to join the team! If you can give 3 or more weeks, love working with kids, and are a fan of the great outdoors, you have hit the jackpot! Our Spanish Language School also gives volunteers the opportunity to learn Spanish while volunteering. Furthermore, if you are interested in serving as a dance or art instructor, or short film producer for your skills are in high demand!


Most of our vol­un­teers stay at The Peace Project Hos­tel, where our pro­gram direc­tors are housed and where many of our activ­i­ties are based. Vol­un­teers pay an all-inclusive weekly price of $125. That cov­ers the cost of a dorm bed, 3 meals per day, util­i­ties, and a 10% tip for our won­der­ful, hard work­ing staff. The Peace Project does not believe in charg­ing a pro­gram fee.
