About Program

In Mexico, our volunteers have the pleasure of working a wonderful organization in one of the most beautiful cities in the country. Oaxaca is known for its large and very present indigenous population that preserves a strong Pre- Hispanic culture in the midst of Spanish colonial architecture. Brimming with artists and artisans, and the surrounding towns are full of markets and ruins, boasting an overwhelming variety of chocolate, mole and mezcal.

In Oaxaca, we are proud to work with two local partner organizations, providing schooling and basic health and wellness to almost 300 families living in the surrounding areas of the city. Volunteer opportunities include: computer literacy education, photography, tutoring, website/design assistance, and more! We are focused on leveraging your skills. If you have an idea for a workshop or another way to support this organization, Do Good as You Go will work with you to make this possible!

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.

Loved this place!

We have volunteered in many locations, but this one was by far our favorite place to visit. The organization was extremely well run by enthusiastic and friendly staff and volunteers. This is one organization that is making a huge difference by supporting children so that the can attend school. They ensure that they are clothed, fed, have school supplies, and provide homework help too! We were so impressed that we decided to sponsor a child ourselves!

Oaxaca City is also a wonderful location to visit. The food is amazing and the people are so friendly. There are many lovely and interesting places to visit nearby in the region too.
