The program

At the heart of this program is the belief that every child has a right to an education, and in supporting the rights of indigenous youth to an education that is culturally appropriate. This program was created with the goal of providing impoverished children in Oaxaca with a solid education and supply additional resources to support them, such as nutritious meals, medical care and extra-curricular activities. By providing an education and supporting their well-being, these vulnerable children will have a solid foundation in which to break the poverty cycle and lead enriched lives.

The project center serves as a place of extracurricular learning for the children, as well as a site of inter-cultural exchange for the many international students and volunteers who contribute. This is a diverse program that will allow volunteers from any background to participate. While qualified teachers are sought after, especially for longer term placements, any volunteer contribution is both valued and beneficial, with all volunteers contributing in their own unique way.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide teaching support to children in Oaxaca City – in Mexico’s most ethnically diverse region
  • Improve the future prospects of some of Mexico’s most impoverished children, and help them to break the poverty cycle,
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both residents and international volunteers alike.
  • Keep children in education for longer by supporting their needs

How you can help

Volunteers play an integral role in achieving the goals of this project. With 600 children participating in the program, volunteers are a much-needed labor force to work directly with children and help with the additional aspects of support.  Providing nutritious meals, medical care, public school tuition and extracurricular academic support to such a large number of needy children is a massive undertaking, requiring a motivated volunteer force. Volunteers on this program make a real difference to the lives of impoverished children, helping them to achieve a higher education and supporting their well-being needs.

Volunteers will contribute in a number of ways and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Work with children in art classes, the computer lab and on other projects and extracurricular activities
  • Work on research, proposals and fundraising projects to assist the program
  • Network with local residents and local project staff
  • Assist with jobs in the library and kitchen
  • Translate letters (for Spanish speakers)

Activités de Loisir

Oaxaca is a colorful, clean and vibrant city in the southern mountain area of Mexico, with a surprising amount of tourists, ex-pats, and volunteers on the streets. The city is big enough to have something for everyone, yet small enough to manage on foot. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants to choose from, including many with rooftop garden-bars to enjoy the picturesque beauty of the area.

You will then be taken to your projects site where you will be introduced to the onsite project team and settled into your project work. Easy!

For those who require extra nights, an additional fee of USD20 per night must be paid directly to your program coordinator on arrival in Mexico. Additional accommodation subject to availability. 

Logement

Volunteers on this program will be accommodated with a local host family, and will gain the opportunity to become immersed in the local culture and custom, improving their knowledge of the people, culture and language. Mexican families are renowned for their hospitality and love to learn more about different cultures. Living with a local family truly is the best way to throw oneself into the local culture and to meet people who will often become lifelong friends!

All families have been fully vetted by our local team and have extensive experience hosting international volunteers. Depending on the time of year it may be necessary to share a room with other volunteers, but private rooms are often available upon request (additional fees may apply). Volunteers will be provided access to a shared bathroom. Host families are often happy to wash clothes for volunteers for a small fee to cover the additional electricity, though mostly volunteers will use a local laundromat. Wifi is available at most host family houses, however we ask volunteers to remember access to this service is a privilege and may be limited at times. A multitude of internet cafes are available throughout Oaxaca.
