Work & Travel - Chile

Wanting to stay abroad but traveling on a low budget? You dream of working abroad? Need a break from your daily routine to seek out new adventures? Do a “Working Holiday” in Chile!
Our Working Holiday programs make a temporary job in Chile possible! The programs are for participants of all ages and backgrounds from recent high school graduates to university students and even professionals. The Working Holiday programs with COINED offer you the opportunity to explore a country and get to know the people while deepening your knowledge of the language and paying for your stay by working.
You won’t receive a salary, but all Working Holiday programs provide meals and lodging. In some
cases, even compensation money.
These unique programs take place in the tourism industry, giving you the chance to help with the preparation and organization of tours as well as actively assisting guests from all over the world. Chile has much to offer for tourists through its natural and cultural attractions. There is something for everyone – from the world’s driest desert in the north of Chile to impressive glaciers and ancient trees in the southern Patagonia region. The abundance of National Parks that span the whole country attract many nature lovers seeking the beauty in the 4,500 km of coast, majestic lakes, rivers and mountains.

To make your trip exceed all expectations, you get to choose your preferred natural setting for your Working Holiday program.
