Proyecto Peru was founded in 2005. We have established many good and solid contacts with different organizations and institutions in Cusco. Proyecto Peru started in the public and social sector in Cusco, offering placements in non prift organizations, in various social projects working, local and foreign NGO´s that are active in the Cusco region and with many public institutions. This means an array of internships in social and cultural work, medical placements in local clinics and education internships in social projects and public schools. Over the years we could add placements in management, marketing, communication, IT, sports and sports education, physiotherapy, psychology, tourism and hospitality. One of our goals is to offer a complete array of internships, so we can offer an internship placement for everybody who wants to come to Latin America.

Internship placements

The internship positions are carefully selected to assure challenging internship positions and good guidance by the company providing the internship. Due to our experience, we know how important that is. And you will also receive guidance from our Proyecto Peru coordinator during your entire stay in Cusco and a weekly meeting with other international interns. Proyecto Peru provides good coordination and guidance of your internship and we arrange your accommodation and Spanish lessons in Cusco.

Click on the area of your study to see which internships we have for you in the Cusco region:

All internships are unpaid internships, a salary or fee is not possible. As a foreigner you may not do any paid work in Peru or receive any compensation. Receiving a compensation would mean you have to apply for a (expensive) work permit and that can not be given for an internship. A work permit is only possible if certain conditions are met, such as a certain minimum wage and a one year contract minimum.


Please look around at our website to see the possibilities we have for you. If you see an interesting placement, please contact us without any obligations. Please tell us when you want to do your internship placement, send us your curriculum / resume in English or Spanish and tell us what your Spanish level is. Then we can check if the placement of your preference is available for you. We´ll do that for you for free and without any obligations! We will provide you with all the information you need to make a good decision and to get approval of your educational institution for the internship.
