WindAid

WindAid has had a phenomenal 2017 so far with 86 volunteers from 22 countries installing and maintaining over a dozen wind turbines in northern Peru. Many of those volunteers came after directly receiving one of these emails, and have helped us to enhance the volunteer experience and increase the impact of their fantastic work:

R&D Involvement - We have involved volunteers on all of our standard 4-week turbine construction & installation programs to get involved with design projects such as remote monitors, blade improvements, and tower redesigns.

Community Engagement - Our volunteers have also been able to connect to the communities we work with like never before. They do presentations to schools, families, and universities, analyze the impact of turbines, and assist in servicing and outreach.

Building Skills for the Future - We want to have every volunteer learn as much as they can from their time in Peru with WindAid and have a full and rounded experience. Our volunteers have gone on to work in major corporations, get invited to do graduate studies at prestigious universities, and create connections from around the world in the sustainability sector.

The 2018 projects are now open for applicants, with the early months already filling up, so please click here for more information!

Volunteering at WindAid

At WindAid Institute our mission is to provide a unique educational experience empowering people to create a sustainable world. We are based in Trujillo, Peru and build both 2.5 kW and 500 Watt wind turbines for small communities and families that are part of some 7 million people in Peru living with no access to grid electricity. Volunteering for WindAid Institute offers an opportunity to explore Peru and to understand firsthand the necessity of renewable energies. It is also an opportunity to learn in depth the design, construction, and installation of a wind turbine and see its direct impact on a rural community, a family or a school.

Volunteers get hands-on experience in all steps of designing, building and installing a wind turbine as part of a team. They will learn and gain expertise in such materials and processes as: carbon fiber, fiberglass, resin composites, steel structures and welding, electrical systems, aerodynamics, and much more; all the while getting to experience the life and cultures of Peru. There are no pre-requisite skills, we seek out passionate, enthusiastic individuals hungry to learn and create a positive change in the lives of others.

WindAid has had over 300 volunteers from 47 different countries with diverse educational backgrounds and interests who have gone on to do great things - many inspired to focus on sustainability or renewable energy - and become part of a global network of young and experienced professionals in these important fields. On our website, www.WindAid.org, you will find volunteer testimonials, as well as more info on the diverse wind energy projects we have completed and the opportunities we offer. You can also check out Facebook to learn more about the day-to-day life as a WindAid volunteer.

Our Project Groups are four weeks long, and if you are interested in a more immersive program we offer a limited number of Long-Term Volunteer opportunities. We have projects year-round with rolling application deadlines. Many 2017 projects are almost full, and we have just released the project opportunities for 2018, so apply soon!
