We need you!!!


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
Come and be part of our family and help keep our beautiful children smiling!

Look what we made

Our Youth Transition Program needs you!

We’re implementing a number of amazing programs at Misión México but we can’t do it alone.

We’re looking for house supervisors to support our young adults as they move to a transition house where they can develop the skills and experience to live independently as adults.  Interested or know someone who might be? Read on!….

In the last 12 months we’ve been working on our Youth Transition Program focusing on those young people at Misión México reaching adulthood to assist and support them into independent living whilst continuing with their education.

The Program encompasses youth from 12 years old and upwards. The initial phase of the program starts in the Misión México home when the young person reaches their teens. The next phase of the program is the transition house where an on-site house supervisor mentors and guides the young people in a supported, safe, nurturing and learning shared home environment.

By providing supervised housing outside of the main home, our youths have the chance to transition to an adult, independent lifestyle, while still having the support of Misión México.

We need supervisor(s) immediately to set up the house with the young adult males, helping them live their day-to-day lives, supporting them and acting as a responsible role model. We will need a supervisor for the female transition house from the end of this year.

This is a long term commitment (min. 12 months).
