While volunteering programs in Peru offer more and more opportunities to sustainably engage in Peru for society, culture and nature, a professional industry based internship seems to be an odd choice. Even where international workers are present, they are also used as a means to support the local community. This is a matter of priority in the social field. The relatively good economic situation hasn’t brought sufficient wealth to large parts of the population. An internship as an English teacher or in the medical field is useful for the community and will broaden your horizons.
Blessed with a rich appearance of natural resources, the mining industry is, in addition to tourism, one of the largest areas of work for locals. But what about other popular internships in engineering, marketing, or in the IT fields? Internships can be found even in small and medium sized companies - especially if the international applicant can already speak a certain level of Spanish.
