On-site Volunteer Program MAPU promotes volunteer work among around the world, in Patagonia, with two main objectives:


  • As a means to raise funds for development purposes and projects of the Association through the membership and placement fee.
  • As one of the instruments of community, social and environmental development in the Patagonian region in order to respond to needs, problems and social interests, and to help strengthen and balance social and economic relations between this southern region and northern developed countries.

In addition to contributing to achieving the objectives of the Association, our volunteers are able to:

  • Get a real insight about the local reality,
  • Become familiar with the lifestyle in the Patagonian region,
  • Participate in the preparation and training workshop for volunteers,
  • Learn Spanish,
  • Live with a local family,
  • Discover and enjoy the natural paradise that is Patagonia!

On the Patagonia Volunteer website you will find all the information concerning participation requirements and the volunteering placements in Patagonia.
