Ninth Wave Global are looking for volunteers to assist with a range of environmental and community projects and initiatives in and around the city of Campeche, south-east Mexico.


Along with several local key partner organisations, this year our projects are based around generating a truly integral and coherent vision of heritage which not only deals with historical landmarks but encompasses a progressive vision for the future of our city and community, with the essential values needed to grow an alliance between who we have been and who we hope to become.



Placements will be individually tailored according to interests and existing experience in order to enable wide-ranging skill development and community engagement. Working as part of the team in Campeche, volunteers will be getting involved with any and all local projects, including (but not limited to!) the following:


  • Mercado Verde - a weekly 'green market' brought about by a community of local artisans and organic producers, aiming to promote fair-trade goods and reduce food miles.
  • Empresa Verde (Green Business) - a co-operative assessment and support framework for local businesses moving towards sustainable, environmentally conscious practices
  • El Campanario - a vanguard socio-environmental project encompassing a food forest, compost and recycling resource, animal shelter and educational workshop on a plot of land on the outskirts of the city. 
  • Xaman Ek cultural programme - diverse workshops, events and cultural projects in and around the city, ranging from cinema screenings and music events to zero-waste workshops and children's activity sessions.
  • Developing sustainable infrastructure for progressive tourism in remote communities across the state


These placements are great for anybody who's looking to improve their Spanish (no initial requirement except a willingness to learn), who are looking to gain experience working on diverse environmental and community projects, and who are interested in learning about permaculture processes and systems.


All participants are asked to contribute $600 USD per calendar month to cover programme costs. This also includes:

— Accommodation in a shared space with other international volunteers and staff

— One meal per day, five days per week

— Transport to communities, between projects and, wherever relevant, guides and language support


All backgrounds and experience levels are welcome to get in touch. Time frames are flexible, with placements available from 1 - 4 months.
