English Tutoring I & II

Channel your inner teacher at Project Amigo next winter! Each January we invite a group of our high school and university students to stay with us in Cofradia for a week of English language instruction. You will work one-on-one with a bright and talented Project Amigo scholar supporting them as they learn and develop confidence in their English language abilities. After school, hang out with the students as we explore the local area and get to know more about this beautiful part of Mexico. The course is designed by a professional English as a Second Language teacher and facilitated by Project Amigo approved Leaders.


The English Tutoring week is one of our most popular service experiences and sells out fast. Register for your spot now!

Swim Week & Back to School

As we enter the hot days of summer, many of us take advantage of heading to a pool,
lake or beach to cool off. In Suchitlan, students don’t know how to swim, and many
haven’t had the opportunity to participate in lessons.

Project Amigo hosts an annual Swim Week to give students an important life skill and
learning experience.  Volunteers with swimming experience can help teach the fundamentals of swimming to staff and students, how to be safe and able to enjoy their water experiences.

Volunteers will also help prepare for Project Amigo’s annual backpack giveaway,
distributing hundreds of school supplies to incoming students getting them ready for
another school year.

Christmas Fiesta

Be one of Santa’s little helpers this Christmas! 


Each year Project Amigo students are invited to an enormous Christmas Fiesta, where each child receives a new outfit, new shoes, a gift, and is a special guest at the biggest, most fantastic Christmas Party ever.


And you’re invited! 


Project Amigo organizes the new shoes, clothes, books and toys; wraps gifts, prepares for the party, puts up decorations, stuffs piñatas and will play host alongside Santa.   The Christmas Fiesta is a highlight of the year for Project Amigo kids and this week is ideal for service families.  Your young children or grandchildren will have never seen a Christmas Party like it.
