Sacred Valley Service

Explore hidden valleys, stunning scenery, and rural villages on our most popular program in Peru. Rooted in service, this program pairs students with local communities on sustainable projects designed to address economic development, public health, and educational needs. Alongside the physical service work, play fútbol with new friends and practice Spanish with locals. Experience adventure while whitewater rafting and biking through the valley. Hike to the ruins of Machu Picchu for an awe-inspiring end to your incredible journey.

Program Profile

Packing the right gear (and the right amounts) is the first step to an incredible travel experience. Follow these tips to pack like a pro:

Travel light. Pack only the essentials. You’ll need less than you think!
Bring the right clothes. Pack clothes that are culturally appropriate for your destination and acceptable for service projects. This means bringing long shorts (think Bermuda and basketball shorts), t-shirts with sleeves to cover shoulders, and appropriate footwear.
Leave your valuables behind. While traveling, it’s easier for things to get lost, stolen, or damaged. Keep any prized possessions safe at home.
Check with TSA. Make sure your luggage complies with TSA regulations, especially your carry-on. Useful tip: Pack an empty water bottle and fill it up after security.
Extra paperwork? If you need additional forms filled out to get credit for your service hours, no problem! Bring these forms with you so they can be completed in-country.
