Cost of Volunteering
There is no cost to register as a volunteer with Bruce Peru. All volunteers pay a contribution to our work in the amount of $360 per month. This is a donation used to develop and open new projects and has no relationship to room and board, which are free. This amount must be paid in advance. Bruce Peru is self sustaining, we are all volunteers and do not rely on government or instutional support. Note: We approve a little more than half of the serious applications we receive. However, we have evaluated and approved a considerable number of applications for volunteers who fail to turn up. For this reason we now require that if your arrival date is more than one month after the time your application is approved you must reconfirm by email your continued intention to come once each month in order for your place to remain reserved; and at least two weeks before you arrive you must email us confirming your arrival date and travel arrangements, and your contribution must have been received (the maximum prepayment required for long-term volunteers is the first three months contribution). There are no refunds.
