Volunteer in an indigenous Shuar Community in the Amazon

If you are interested in learning about other cultures and protecting the Amazon rainforests, an adventure waits for you in Arútam and Ecuador. We offer volunteer placements all year round to people who actively want to engage in community development, conservation, and experience the Amazon as well as learn about the life of the Shuar Indians.


For us, volunteering is not just about the work. It is also a cultural exchange and opportunity to learn about the Shuar culture, and volunteers are invited to participate in all community activities. You will also be given the opportunity to visit other Shuar and Quichua communities in the surrounding forest as well as exploring the amazing 2600 acre reserve located right next to the community

How to Apply

There are no set arrival/departure dates for the project. When you apply and pay you just need to inform us about your proposed participation dates. The project is available year round. Although we accept volunteers for short periods of time (2 week minimum) we encourage volunteers to make a commitment for 4 weeks in order to gain more thorough insight knowledge about the project and the Shuar. The arrival date is also flexible and your stay first starts once arrived in the community.


You can apply by sending us an email or by filling out the application form here:
