With its white sandy beaches, beautiful scenery, warm sunny weather and rich ancient history Mexico has become a world renowned travel destination. Situated in Central America, bordering the United States to the north and Guatemala to the south, Mexico is a rapidly changing country hosting both ancient Mayan and Aztec routes and one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world. The Frontier-Mexico project gives you the opportunity to experience life in this warm and friendly country as you help empower children and provide a safe and fun environment for them to learn and play away from the hardships children face in impoverished areas.
Many parents in this part of Mexico have to work long hours to provide for their families and the centre you will be placed in offers a relief for these families, enabling the children to spend time with positive adult role models as well as have the opportunity to not only learn but simply play with their peers. Children here might have been victims of aggression or are at risk of being left alone for large parts of the day so your care and attention will be gratefully received.
Not only will you spend time teaching and looking after the children, you will also have the opportunity learn about Mexican culture as you immerse yourself in the Caribbean way of life. Alongside volunteers and travellers from all over the world you will have the chance to not only make a difference ein the lives of these children but your own as well, and walk away with memories for life.
