Promote the learning of children from Tlaxaca, Mexico, by giving classes, supporting local teachers, and giving individual reinforcement to students who need it. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Singoli
Coppie
Gruppi
50+
This teaching project centers around accompanying the educational and training process of the community of the Simón Bolivar SC Science and Humanities Educational Center. Here, you will work with students aged 5 to 15 in activities that will help them strengthen their language proficiency, school performance, and social and cultural skills. 

In this project, volunteers focus in promoting the learning of children during classes and also after them, in an after school program open to those children who have difficulty learning. Here, we strive to create collaborative and situated work environment, with contexts and situations close to those of the children, so that we can more easily create meaningful learning. 

Volunteers may help by performing tasks such as: 
  • Support local teachers in English classes or other subjects where the volunteer feels ready to help.
  • Give support to students in their daily school tasks
  • Collaborate with recreational, sports, and cultural activities for the students
  • Give workshops on topics like human rights, equity, inclusion, and caring for the environment
  • Support the creative reading and writing workshop
  • Orient the parents and the guardians of the students at the school
  • Restore and give maintenance to school areas
  • Help organise activities such as community work, school festivals, and other projects with other local schools
And many other tasks that may arise depending on the specific needs of the school at the moment. 

Typical day

Volunteers work on weekdays (Monday through Friday) in two shifts: 
  • The morning shift, that lasts from 8:00 to 12:00
  • The afternoon shift, that lasts from 11:00 to 15:00
The project is located at a 20 minute distance by public transport from the place the volunteer shall be staying at. 
Volunteers also have to keep in mind that this project is created in synch with local schools, which means that the existence of additional extracurricular activities depends on school policies and student availability. 

Free-time activities

Mexico is a magic place, with a culture rich in traditions and festivals that you might be able to participate in during your stay. That heritage is very noticeable in Mexico's many historical sites, bustling cities, and other places that you cannot miss during your stay in the country. Mexico also has plenty of unique and astonishing nature sights you must see in person. Some of the places in Mexico that we recommend you visit are:

  • Ciudad de México: Mexico's capital and largest city, it has many places you can visit, such as a wide array of museums (most recommended are the Anthropology museum, the Modern Art museum, and the Soumaya museum), archaeological areas such as Teotihuacán and El Zócalo, historical buildings such as the ones in Xochimilco, Garibaldi, and Coyoacán, large parks, and even the Cineteca Nacional (where you can explore the national cinematic production, movies produced throughout Mexico's history). 
  • Tlaxcala and surroundings: The smallest state in Mexico, Tlaxcala is a place known for its large Nahua population, stunning archaeological sites, beautiful haciendas, and nature reserves. Some of the most beautiful places in this state are La Malinche, forests like the Sare firefly sanctuary, places like Va'Quirico and Trinidad, and also visiting during one of the many local festivities like the Día de los Muertos or the Great Tlaxcala Fair.
  • Puebla: This city has many interesting places to visit: the Zócalo, the small city of Cholula, many cafés and bars.. North from the city, there's the Northeast Sierra of Puebla, where you can visit towns such as Cuetzalan. Here, you can experience a more rural and natural way of living, filled with local indigenous cultural expressions and traditions. 
  • Cancún and Mayan riviera: An area with some of the most beautiful beaches in the entire world, you could visit the island of Holbox (known for its bioluminescent plankton), the Playa del Carmen, the Isla Mujeres, Cenotes, and Cancún. There are also many historical sites and ruins you can visit in this area, such as Tulum and Playacar
