Volunteer Work in Mexico

Mexican Volunteer Programs

OPEN NOW!

Love Volunteers offers placements for much-needed volunteers in Oaxaca City in Mexico. Volunteers will be given the chance to work with children and support medical personnel in clinics and hospitals in this fascinating Latin American country.

Often a stint spent volunteering provides the perfect gap year transition before launching on a university degree. Equally, volunteering can fill a break between jobs or career, as it can be the ideal way to gain a new perspective on life or to re-examine one’s values. There is no doubt that volunteering offers the chance to savour a different culture and to engage with people who genuinely need the support volunteers’ can provide.

Volunteering in Mexico is both challenging and rewarding. Its' many different indigenous groups, unsettled economy and lack of state-provided facilities have meant that the more marginalized inhabitants of the country suffer various forms of deprivation. Enriching the lives of such people is what volunteering in Mexico is about. Being in Mexico also provides an excellent opportunity to learn Spanish.

Mexico is a country known for its colour, crowds, festivities and noise and Oaxaca City, where our volunteers projects are located, is no exception!  Located in Oaxaca State in the southwest of the country, Oaxaca City has a mild climate year round and offers visitors an authentic Mexican experience.
