volunteer with us

Latin American House would not be where it is without the support and hard work of our wonderful volunteers. Whatever your area or level of expertise, please get in touch if you think you can offer support to Latin American House and its members. We welcome volunteers from all backgrounds with language skills in either English, Spanish or Portuguese.

The work that volunteers can expect to get involved is as varied as the services we provide, and we always offer our volunteers the necessary support and training to make a worthwhile contribution and to feel like a valued member of the Latin American House team. On top of that you will have the opportunity to meet new people, improve your language skills and have the pleasure of knowing that you are helping others who need it.
