Volunteer in Colonial Oaxaca, Mexico for complete language, community and cultural immersion. Oaxaca is one of the most biodiverse areas in Mexico and is known for the amazing ARTS produced there by local and ex-pat artists, and for the FOOD, which has a whole festival dedicated to it (the Guelaguetza)!
Adelante's volunteer abroad program combines the career focus provided by internships, with the social orientation found in volunteer work. With Adelante, you can volunteer in sectors such as law, healthcare, the arts, psychology and even historical renovation work (visit Adelante's site for a complete list of fields).
In addition to working in Oaxaca, the program includes Spanish classes + some cultural excursions. Your own room, living with a local or in a shared guesthouse, is also included. If you're looking to make a difference, take advantage of this perfect opportunity to do a volunteer program in Mexico!
