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.
The projects of Local Dreamers were just what I was looking for. Volunteering means working hard, but you get back so much more than the effort you put in. An experience I will never forget!
Go for it! If you appreciate a personal approach and a friendly atmosphere, this is the organization you should choose. I had a wonderful time!
With Local Dreamers I gained experience in almost every aspect of my life and it helped me to orientate myself for the future
Local Dreamers in a nutshell: dynamic and personal. Dynamic because you’re eager to learn and always open to new ideas, and personal because I never felt like a number
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.
