A Work Week at Project Amigo is a Mexican experience like no other. Each Work Week is designed to give you a balanced perspective. Certainly, our students and their families have great need (the “Project” half) but they also have a rich culture into which they are keen to welcome you (the “Amigo” half). You will spend your week working and playing in rural villages, in beach-side towns, in migrant work camps, and in the schools and communities where the heart of Project Amigo--our students--resides! When you volunteer for a Work Week at Project Amigo, you will make a difference while building friendships that last a lifetime.
Your program fee of $1200 includes accommodations, all meals, the full-time support of the volunteer coordinator, airport pick-up and drop-off, transportation, special events, field trips, and materials. Airfare not included.
