At VolunQuest, we pride ourselves on providing an unparalleled volunteer experience abroad. Our family run foundation has over thirty years of experience working with the local community. This allows our volunteers an authentic experience working beside community stakeholders while also assuring our volunteers the utmost in safety and security. We work with a diverse group of creditable agencies such as local governments, unions and non-profit organizations. These organizations are dedicated to the wellbeing and advancement of the local people and environment. Beyond the incredible opportunity to work with, and learn from, these esteemed groups, volunteers also receive references from them for use in their future endeavors.
Our goal is to provide an exemplary volunteer experience that mutually enriches the local community and the lives of our volunteers. Our central focus is providing free English language education to K-12th grade children in Isla Mujeres, Mexico. In order to meet our goal we proudly provide in-house Program Directors and Instructors. These specialists directly supervise the implementation of our curriculum. Additionally, our CELTA certified New Volunteer Educator oversees the training of all our participants. We maintain a continuous curriculum written and supervised by our Director of Curriculum. This allows for a new volunteer to pick up where a previous volunteer left off, and assures that the students we serve are constantly advancing in their language education.
We additionally sponsor a plethora of other projects that aid the local community and environment. These projects have diverse aims including wildlife conservation, arts education, and urban development. In choosing the projects we support and commit to, we focused on organizations that empower the participants. As the ancient Chinese proverbs goes, "give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime. " We believe that the best way to move towards positive change is to enable people to take control of their own destinies.
