1 testimonial about this trip

  1. Reviewer: located in OH
    "Life for the average Mexican is tough and yet they are hard-working, warm and friendly, happy and family-oriented. The schools stress learning English to open doors for economic and social betterment. This experience gave me a greater empathy for their economic plight and struggle to better their condition. We in the U.S. have so much, others so little."

Mexico Work Projects

Teaching in Mexico Global Volunteers' unique philosophy of service ensures your work projects help advance the host community's current development vision and goals. Always serving at the invitation and under the direction of host community partners, each Global Volunteers team member works alongside local people, and personally contributes to needed project financing through their service program fee. Our long-term commitment to work in partnership on sustained community development projects enables you, in just a short time, to serve as a critical link in a chain of lasting community enhancements.

You're needed to teach conversational English to university students in the towns of Dolores Hidalgo and Queretaro. As a volunteer, you will enter into a privileged relationship with these young adult learners. Often, students who are too timid to practice English skills in class in front of their professors will eagerly open up in the presence of a friendly volunteer, who can relate to them in an informal, non-judgmental way. Any native English speaker can be an important resource -- no previous teaching experience is required.

You'll meet your students in classrooms, often in small groups and practice language skills and pronunciation. The focus is on English conversation, not grammar, so only your own creativity is needed. Each class follows a syllabus and uses texts which guide the volunteers through daily lessons. Team members often add examples from their personal lives to liven up the conversations. As with many Global Volunteers' conversational English programs, each volunteer teaches approximately four hours a day, using the remainder of the day to prepare for class and team meetings.
