How to Contact a Volunteer in Ecuador
Your volunteer will have internet access at the hostel where s/he is staying, so you should be able to email as usual.
If you have not heard from a volunteer and are concerned, or need to contact a volunteer immediately, you may contact the program’s directors in Ecuador or in the United States, and they will be able to reach the volunteer for you.
To call the staff in Ecuador, please dial 00593 6 292 0185. The Ecuadorian staff speaks Spanish only, so if you don’t speak Spanish, you should contact the staff in the U.S.
To call the staff in the U.S., please call 610-931-7715.
You may contact the program’s staff by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Both the Ecuadorian and U.S. staffs will regularly check this address, and will respond as soon as possible.
At what times can I contact a volunteer?
The best times to reach a volunteer is on weekday mornings from 9 AM to 12 PM CST. You may also contact a volunteer when they return from work around 7 PM CST on weekdays.
Volunteers will be difficult to reach during school hours from 1-5 PM CST, and may also be difficult to reach on the weekend during trips. To find out whether a volunteer is on a trip each weekend, you may contact the foundation staff, or check the Trips and Activities section of the site, which will be updated each time the volunteers travel.
