One of our awesome volunteers Chris Hubbard has recently had his volunteering experience with Misión México published in popular surfing website Inertia, a website dedicated to surf, mountain, and outdoor culture.
Hola friends of Mision Mexico,
We urgently need volunteers to come and assist us at Mision Mexico for the months of July, August and September.
The children are coming up to their end of year exams and will be commencing their summer holidays in July. We are looking for enthusiastic, caring and fun volunteers who are available over these holidays and into the new school 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.
“What I enjoyed the most about my time volunteering at Mision Mexico was feeling part of the family and being accepted so fast! It reminded me that having a family that really cares for you and loves you is the most important thing in life and I need to appreciate more what life has offered me.
I will never forget Marli painting herself from head to toes on my first volunteer shift. Or my first ride in the bus to the beach, where we all squeezed in and were singing along with songs from Bruno Mars & Co. Or teaching the girls some choreography and seeing how much fun they had learning the dances. Mision Mexico was such a rewarding experience for me that my family and I have decided to become Education Sponsors for one of the little boys. I love that I can still be part of their journey even if I am no longer in Mexico”.

We have found a Volunteer Manager to support our Volunteer Program in Tapachula, Mexico.
The main purpose of the Volunteer Manager is to ensure that an adequate supply of volunteers are available to meet the needs of Misión México and to manage and co-ordinate the volunteers in Tapachula.
The role is immensely important, both at the ground level in the day to day work of the refuge, and to the greater vision for Misión México. We have found an individual that acknowledges and practices these values and who can identify and follow through with the continual improvement and development of volunteer work with Misión México.
We urgently need volunteers to come to Misión México and help our kids. We have recently taken several new children into our home and we need energetic, enthusiastic people on deck to act as mentors, friends and teachers to our kids…and of course, to have fun while you’re doing it!
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 walk away from the place 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?
As well as needing volunteers to help us out generally, we are currently looking for:
Youth Transition Workers – to act as role models, mentors and supervisors for our young adults as they transition to an independent lifestyle in our male and female transition houses.
Homeschool Teacher– to work with our daughter, Brooke Skuse, to homeschool some of our children who find it difficult to learn in the mainstream education system.
Both roles are a minimum of 6-12 months with living expenses covered.
If you, or someone you know, would like to volunteer with us in Tapachula or share your skills locally to fundraise for our Misión México family please contact email@example.com
Come and be part of our family and help keep our beautiful children smiling!
With warm regards,
Pam and Alan Skuse
My name is Merric and this is my fourth visit to Misión México.
Misión México is an inspiration to me. I first visited in 2004 and I have known many of the young adults since they were young children.
They have been able to develop skills and knowledge through education, the commitment of Pam and Alan and the many volunteers who come to share their professional knowledge and skills.
It is great to see opportunities opened up for them so their hopes and dreams can become a reality.
Coming back on each visit and seeing the developments and accomplishments of the children is a humbling and joyful experience. I have had the privilege to share my skills in piano with some of the kids, Sammy, in particular has shown great learning ability in the practice of the piano.
Sammy has a keen interest in piano and watching him develop so quickly and take on board what I have to teach him has been greatly inspiring.
I am currently visiting to assist in the landscaping of a new educational and surf training facility, MisiónSurf. I am thrilled to be involved with such a major project that will bring much needed jobs, educational opportunities and tourism to the Tapachula area.
This will allow the children to put into practice the skills and knowledge gained through their education.
I feel privileged to be able to share the skills and abilities I have gained through my life and to be able to share in the lives of these amazing individuals as they grow.
For volunteering opportunities please email firstname.lastname@example.org and visit our website for more information.
Education is one of our key priorities.
The new school year is starting soon with all the children enrolled for the coming year, that is, all except five children who have learning difficulties.
Some of these children have been in school for a year now and still can’t read. Our daughter Brooke Skuse is taking on the responsibility of homeschooling five of our Mision Mexico children plus her own two children.
Therefore, we need help. We are looking for a teacher’s aide for primary level to volunteer with us long term, minimum of 12months. We can guarantee it will be a challenge, but also rewarding. Accommodation and food supplied.
Please email email@example.com if you are interested in this once in a lifetime opportunity and would like more information.
We are building a new surf school and complex here in Tapachula, that will equip our refuge’s older children with valuable work skills as well as help the home they grew up in, Albergue Misión México, to become self-sufficient.
We need YOUR help!

As volunteers we acted as a friend, sibling, teacher, babysitter, hairdresser and, on rare occasions, chef. Mision Mexico is one in a million. Volunteers should expect heat and hard work but also an unforgettable experience that you will talk about forever!
I will be forever grateful to Alan, Pam and the children’s hospitality and for the honorable opportunity to serve them. I am definitely returning to Mision Mexico because each child now holds a special place in my heart. There is no way you cannot get attached to such strong, courageous children!
