GET INVOLVED IN
Each year Canadians come to Project Amigo to volunteer, meet the students, and learn more about the people and culture of western Mexico. Service weeks include various projects such as the distribution of children’s books, interacting with junior and high school students at their homework clubs, or doing English Tutoring. Some may involve light construction work or distributing food, clothing, and other essentials, to families in the seasonal workers' villages. Other weeks involve helping to prepare for the annual outings for children who have never been to a beach, a lake, or attend a Christmas Fiesta. Volunteers have opportunities to share their skills and knowledge and learn some Spanish, Mexican cooking, and cultural traditions. Feedback from participants feels they have been able to help make a significant difference in the lives of these children.
