Yes, I recommend this program

Go! Travel! Serve!

I seriously don't know why you wouldn't go on a trip to Mexico through Volunteers for Peace! This was a life changing and eye opening experience for me. I met a ton of like minded individuals from Meixco and all over the world. I believe it is very important for US citizens especially to see the beauty of the people and culture of Mexico. HIGHLY recommended! <3
