Schools in Mexico receive very little state support. Helping hands are therefore always welcome. During your time on site, it is important that you show a lot of initiative.

Typical tasks in our volunteer program in Mexico with children: You look after the children, help with lessons, help with cooking, assist the local teachers or take on cleaning and renovation work. The local staff look forward to your support and new ideas.

During your volunteer work in Mexico, you can discover a cheerful culture. For travelers with little knowledge of the language, we recommend taking a language course in advance to help you find your way around the country when travelling and on bus trips. Travel with friends from the language school and experience colorful Mexico.

All programs can be booked with friends. If you would like to book a program as a group, we recommend that you enquire in advance. Each person must book the project individually.

Ideal for all programs are at least three months in advance. In principle it is also possible for us to place short-term applicants (volunteering and language study travel) in Mexico.

Mexico is a safe country and the people are very friendly and warmhearted. In big cities, as in every big city in the world, there is petty crime. When travelling, the following things should be taken into account: always keep an eye on valuables, always keep your hand luggage on your lap in buses, and at night you should not travel by bus or withdraw money from ATMs. Up-to-date information on the situation can be found at the Embassy or Foreign Office.

Please note that in Costa Rica all electronic devices can only be used with an adapter. They are available in many electronics stores.

In principle, no language course is mandatory in advance. However, depending on the volunteering program, certain levels of the language of your destination country may be required to complete the project. We would be happy to advise you individually on your chosen project.

Depending on the program, we work with host families in the vicinity or there are volunteer houses at the project site.

For all programs you have to be covered by foreign health insurance. We will be happy to help you find a suitable insurance policy.

During the language school and in the volunteering projects, you will always have a direct contact person to help you with any problems. Of course you can also always contact us.
