The annual Ernesto Che Guevara Volunteer Work Brigade was established in 1993 to exchange political and cultural ideas with Cuba in the spirit of solidarity and respect. The Ernesto Che Guevara Volunteer Work Brigades itinerary includes up to 10 days of volunteer work. While this work is physical, the pace is not strenuous and should not deter the not-so-young-and-fit. In the past Brigadistas have ranged in age, from 10-86! The morning is our main work time, where Brigadistas work alongside Cubans sharing, learning and having an important exchange. After lunch time Brigadistas have meetings with various groups and organizations, or visit the beach, or enjoy some free time. After dinner could be free time, or some excursions or dance lessons!

The Che Brigade is led by a friendly group of English-speaking Cubans who accompany Brigadistas throughout their visit.
