About Program

Travel to Mexico, a land of rich Hispanic culture, vibrant traditions, and a fascinating history. Mexico's historical attractions include the ancient ruins of the Olmecs, Maya, and Aztec, and the train routes used by the brash and legendary Pancho Villa. The country enjoys a temperate climate and a unique culture; a fusion of the European and the Meso-American. The beach resorts and colonial cities are other attractions of Mexico.

In Mexico, over 40% of its population still live in poverty, and over 10% in extreme poverty. Free education and healthcare are essential in the fight towards combating poverty, and in turn education also plays a role in protecting Mexico's breathtaking natural landscapes and diverse cultures. You can help change the lives of disadvantaged communities and change your life too.

You can help Mexico by participating in one of our volunteer opportunities in Mexico, which include turtle conservation projects, teaching and special education.

Consider your impact: Volunteering abroad can be a rewarding experience for both volunteers and local communities, and at Go Overseas, we believe all volunteers should have the resources to make informed decisions about the type of volunteer project they want to partake in. However, despite best intentions, some organizations offering placements in orphanages may unknowingly place children in danger. You can read about the potential dangers of orphanage volunteering here.

Yes, I recommend this program

Mexico Volunteering

CAM Special Ed school is a wonderful program for handicapped children. The children are well cared for and the teachers are exceptional. However as volunteers without decent Spanish, and maybe even if we had good Spanish, we were much more observers than doers- something we had not expected and was disappointing for us. We really could not contribute in a meaningful way, but since the staff had things under control, that was hardly a crisis. We stayed with a wonderful family with good accommodation and always felt safe. Melaque has a stunning beach and the area is still ‘old Mexico’ with great eats and inexpensive prices. We reservedly recommend; all depends what you’re looking for. This opportunity is pretty laid back but may be suitable for some.

Response from Global Crossroad

Hello Lynwood and Denise ,

Thank you so much for volunteering with us and for taking out the time to write a feedback. We are happy to know that you enjoyed your volunteering project. We also apologize for the Language gap. Now, we have been informing all our volunteers to Latin American countries to learn basic Spanish before the project.

We wish you both all the best for your future endeavours.
