Become a Volunteer!

Volunteers are the ambassadors of Local Dreamers in Ecuador. They are our heroes.
Almost a 200 volunteers of Dutch, Belgian, German, Swiss, American, British and Ecuadorian nationalities
have combined forces with the Ecuadorian population to work on a world that makes people happy.

Volunteer at Local Dreamers

No day is the same as a volunteer at Local Dreamers. Our program is very flexible and is adjusted to the needs of our project communities, and to the passions and dreams of our volunteers as well. On a monthly basis we organize project meetings in which the volunteers and interns have the opportunity to state and implement their own ideas, corrections and additions in the program. Local Dreamers has a very personal approach. You are absolutely not a puppet or an unheard voice within a large organization. On the contrary, we regard you as an important and creative being, which is highly needed for the continuation and optimization of our projects.

Experience has shown us that the efficiency of our projects is a lot higher when its volunteers feel at comfort, when they are happy in their own skin. Therefore, we put extra effort in creating a positive and relaxed working climate that feels welcoming all.

Friendship for life

The working environment of Local Dreamers has been the source of special friendships more than once. This is because we tend to hang out and make fun together after work. You´ll get so familiar and close with your fellow volunteers that the ties you have built with them in Ecuador will often continue to exist when you return home.
