What past volunteers say...
"My name is Tatiana, and I'm from Argentina. My time volunteering for Coast 2 Coast back in 2019 gave me a great opportunity to work closely with a group of diverse and passionate people, but not only also with the community, the Fishermans, and the kids in the town.
The range of volunteers and directors that were in Lobitos for Festival Somos Mar brought unique skillsets and perspectives to the projects that we were working on and created a fun and empathetic working environment.
Besides the amazing work Coast 2 Coast did that year and does every day, I found the people and Lobitos itself to be welcoming and enchanting, which has made it one of my favorite places I’ve visited in Perú, and I'll be always grateful to Emi and Nico for that amazing experience."
