VolunQuest's central focus is providing free English language education to 1st-6th grade children in the public primary schools in Isla Mujeres, Mexico. This is a unique opportunity to teach English in actual nationally accredited schools with little or no previous teaching experience. Our volunteers are all professionally trained, supervised and given a certificate of teaching hours completed from the Secretary of Education of the state of Quintana Roo. Our goal is to provide an exemplary volunteer experience that mutually enriches the local community and the lives of our volunteers. In addition to teaching English, VolunQuest sponsors projects that aid the local community and environment. These projects have diverse aims including health & safety education, environmental awareness, animal rights, and arts education. Specifically, volunteers can be involved in our Library Reader or Summer Camp projects.
