DescriptionOutreach360 is a world-class provider of international volunteer service-learning opportunities, meeting real needs in the communities it serves with the energy and resources of Outreach360 volunteers and donors. The focus is on children's education, and the cultural interchange between the international volunteers and the local communities is a significant outcome of the program.
The Outreach360 Caminos Long Term Volunteer Program offers powerful semester-long and summer service-learning internships that focus on education in order to give disadvantaged children a life of choice.

Fall 2013 start date is August 24th.
Real People. Real World. Real Service.
Volunteering with Outreach360 is both safe and affordable. It's not a requirement that volunteers know Spanish or have extensive teaching or training experience teaching but Caminos volunteers will be encouraged to work on their Spanish language skills while serving. Staff located in the participating countries coordinate all of the logistics for the volunteers, from housing and meals to transportation, insurance and health needs. Reliable management ensures that volunteers can concentrate on providing service and absorbing the sights and sounds of the local culture.

We are both a volunteer and fund-raising organization; our volunteers commit to help raise funds for the programs we sponsor based on the length of their stay. We encourage volunteers not to pay any of their program donations, but instead raise funds through the sponsorship of family and friends. When you sign up, you will receive an on-line fund-raising page that will allow you to easily send out informative emails to family and friends, inviting them to sponsor you through donations on-line.
