Projects in Ecuador


Peace Corps Ecuador's Teaching English as Foreign Language (TEFL) program supports the government of Ecuador’s development goals in helping Ecuadorian primary, secondary, and tertiary teachers improve their skills and resources for teaching English as a foreign language.


The community health project has three main components: child maternal health, reproductive health and rights, and prevention of tropical disease. Volunteers also work to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted illnesses (STIs).

Youth in Development

The youth and families project provides youth and families in marginal neighborhoods with more opportunities to improve their quality of life. The program focuses on youth and families at greatest risk for negative outcomes.
