Volunteers are needed at Misión México all year round, and people from all over the world come to dedicate their time and effort. We consider a volunteer to be a "friend in authority" here at Mission Mexico. Our children need love and fun, but also guidance, routine, and consistent limits.

We are looking for passionate people to join our team and lead activities and workshops based on their skills and expertise.

The application process for Specialist Volunteers will include a request for a proposal of your course/workshop so we can schedule your time accordingly. Please be conversational, professional or native speaking in English (basic Spanish would be great and useful to you here!).

 

Volunteers must be 21 years and older, willing to commit for 2 weeks minimum or more and be prepared to apply with structured lesson plans, aims and ideas.
