We believe in responsible, ethical tourism.
Condortrekkers is presently volunteer-managed and run, with the intention of transferring this to the paid Bolivian staff. We are always interested in hearing from people who feel that they have something to offer the project, and this is a guide to some of the ways in which volunteers can get involved, but it is by no means comprehensive. If you have some other idea for how you think you can help out, we’d love to hear your suggestions. Please contact us.
There is no need to apply formally to work with Condortrekkers; we don’t need references and CVs. Rather, send an email explaining why you want to be a part of the organization, and what exactly it is that you’d like to do. If you have relevant experience please do mention this, but we don’t demand that you are an expert in your field; enthusiasm and passion for the project are the most important qualities in a volunteer.
Having said this, the volunteers that are of greatest use to the organization are those who have experience in relevant fields and who can stay for longer periods of time. This is important for getting to know the tours we will do as well as the people we will be involved with.
You do not need to speak Spanish to work with Condortrekkers, but speaking at least a modest level of Spanish will open up a lot more opportunities to help out here. We can put you in touch with excellent Spanish teachers to help you improve your level.
Guiding and tourism experience are certainly an advantage however an outgoing personality and good social skills are sufficient and we will train you up on the rest.
Condortrekkers is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide financial support to other organizations in and around Sucre, and so does not pay any of its volunteers. We can help you find accommodation, Spanish classes and anything else you might want while in Sucre, but you will need to support yourself financially while working with us.
