A number of organizations offer volunteer opportunities in Honduras, on projects ranging from building homes to teaching English.
The website www.travel-to-honduras.com has a long list of groups that run volunteer programs here, from large operations like Casa Alianza (www.casa-alianza.org) to the tiny Utila Iguana Conservation Project.
Most independent travelers who stay in Honduras to work do so on the Bay Islands; dive instructors are almost exclusively foreigners, and many people completing dive-master training raise a little extra cash working as waiters or bartenders in West End, West Bay or Utila. Most do not have work permits and leave every three to six months to get a new tourist visa.
If you’d like to spend more time in Honduras than a vacation allows, experiencing what it’s like to live and make a difference to the local community, it’s all possible by Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) with i-to-i TEFL. No previous teaching experience or local language knowledge is necessary.
