International Mission Trips

South America is full of international mission trip opportunities for faith-based youth, college, adult and family volunteer groups. Ecela Spanish can help your group plan a mission trip to South America in and around the following cities: Buenos Aires, Mendoza, Lima, Cusco, Santiago and Viña del Mar.

In conjunction with our study abroad Spanish courses, an international mission trip is a unique way to immerse yourself in Latin American culture and spend valuable time giving back to local communities. Through teamwork and team bonding, you’ll be able to apply what you learn in class to the real world and help those in need.

How You Can Help

Local Church in PeruEcela Spanish partners with volunteer programs, church groups and internship organizations in developing regions across South America to not only provide life-changing mission trip opportunities for students, but also to serve those who live in there. Whether your group leans towards healthcare or general human rights, we can help you find a South American mission trip program that matches your group’s interests.

By planning a mission trip to South America, faith-based groups will have the chance to advocate peace and healing in areas with limited resources. Many of which are areas whose communities have been deeply affected by injustice, violence and natural disasters.

International mission trips are not just for priests and missionaries. Many Ecela Spanish students from all walks of life choose to get involved with South American mission trips to fulfill their philanthropic passions and spread the message of love.
