We urgently need volunteers to come and assist us at Misión México for the coming months – particularly the last two weeks of November and throughout December.
The children are in school until the Christmas holidays begin in mid-December. During school term, we need help with the general running of the house, helping the children with getting ready for school and extracurricular activities, organising activities on the weekend, lifeguarding at the beach and generally supporting the loving, caring, secure environment that we aim to give them.
The Christmas holidays are a much busier and very memorable time of the year – the kids are all at home so we get to spend loads of quality time with them. There’s plenty of time to organise activities – cooking lessons, arts and crafts, swimming competitions, water fights, volleyball games – and excursions.
Christmas and New Year’s Eve are such a special time in the refuge, as a member of our extended Misión México family, we’d love you to come and join us!
We are looking for enthusiastic, caring and fun volunteers who are available over these periods and into the new year to be mentors, friends and teachers.
As those of you who have volunteered with us before will know, time at Misión México is not a holiday, however it is incredibly rewarding and you will leave with the satisfaction that you have made a difference in the lives of these wonderful children.
We would love to see your smiling face in Tapachula again and this time, why not share the experience with a friend?
We are also looking for volunteers with specific theatre, musical and artistic skills to run small programs with the children over the holidays.
If you, or someone you know, would like to volunteer with us in Tapachula or would like further information about our volunteer program or even share your skills locally to fundraise for our Misión México family pleasecontact us.
Volunteers must be over 21 and commit to a 6 week minimum volunteering period.
