MQ Volunteer Program  has established close relationships with various non-profit organizations in Huancayo and surrounding areas. Together with these partner organizations MQ Volunteer Program develops projects and tasks for the volunteers based on the current needs of each institution. As a volunteer, you will be working with one of the partner organizations (listed below). Naturally, MQ staff will provide constant support and assistance as you adjust to your new role and become a member of a local non-profit organization.

Volunteers are encouraged to choose a site based on their interests, skills and previous professional experience. Please choose a site where you feel you’d be most helpful.

Volunteers at the community health center must be trained medical professionals (e.g. doctor, dentist, pharmacists, nurse, emergency medical technician, etc) or students of medicine or other health related fields. A certification of professional training/student status is required as a proof.
