For many disadvantaged Mexican families, childcare organizations enable parents to go to work knowing their children are in a safe learning environment.
By volunteering with children in Mexico, you’ll be contributing to developing young children’s social and learning skills during their important early years. Not only that, but you’ll also alleviate pressure on parents and give them a better opportunity to work and provide income for their families.
You’ll volunteer in a wide variety of different settings, including a family crèche at children’s therapy centers, day care centers for single mothers, as well as other community centers.
Volunteer duties include helping with group activities, games, arts and crafts and occasionally assisting with meal and nap times. You’ll help provide one-on-one time with a child which can be significant in helping their development.
Volunteers should bring creativity and enthusiasm, as centers are often under-resourced. If required, you should also be prepared to travel longer distances to your placement.Apply now
