Working and volunteering


A great way to engage with Mexican communities and contribute something other than tourist dollars is to do some volunteer work. Many organizations can use your services for periods from a few hours to a year or more. Work ranges from protecting sea turtles to helping disadvantaged children. Some organizations are looking for people with relevant experience and/or Spanish-language skills; others can use almost any willing hand.

Many language schools offer part-time local volunteering opportunities to complement the classes you take.
