Misión México provides a loving, secure home for children of all ages who have been abused, neglected, orphaned or abandoned. The number of children in our care changes constantly, but on average we care for between 20 - 30 children on a permanent basis.
Volunteers are needed all year round at Misión México and people from all over the world come to donate their time to us.
We consider a volunteer to be a ‘friend with authority’ here at Misión México. The children need love and fun but also guidance and discipline.
Volunteers do not require any specific qualifications to volunteer in our refuge. However, volunteers interested in helping must have a love for children and a willingness to share their time and compassion with patience and flexibility. Being able to work as part of a team is important as there are likely to be other volunteers assisting at the same time. Lots of energy, enthusiasm and creativity are needed at all times to encourage the children’s learning and development! Please be aware that the days are hot, long and tiring but very rewarding. The children are full of beans and desire love and attention at all times.
Knowledge of the Spanish language is particularly helpful as is experience in working with children. However we use English as our main language of communication.
