Volunteering With Disadvantaged Children

Trip Highlights

  • Volunteer to help in a daycare or community center in Merida or a community close to the city
  • You’ll mostly work with children and adolescents who belong to the underprivileged communities and they are not given much attention by their parents
  • A basic level of Spanish will be helpful for this project, but not compulsory
  • Get to explore the nooks and corners of Mexico with a bunch of like-minded travelers
  • Opportunity to be a part of social welfare team to help make a positive difference in the lives of the children


Being a part of this volunteering with the disadvantaged youth program in Mexico with Volunteering Solutions will surely be a challenging as well as an overwhelming journey! For Mexico’s most vulnerable, life remains a challenge – especially for families and children from disadvantaged backgrounds. Poor parents have to work all day and they need support from the daycare centers and the community in order to make a living. In these centers, many extra hands are needed to engage with children and adolescents. 

If you are joining this program, then your main role will be to help the staff with daily activities like feeding, playing, singing, making arts, helping with the homework, or simply be an extra source of affection and love for the children and adolescents. 

As a volunteer, you will help the staff to look after the children with the above-mentioned activities. Volunteers are encouraged to bring new ideas. As needed, they also help the local staff with household chores like cleaning up, preparing meals and planning activities.

The love and affection you'll receive from them will be very rewarding and of course, you’ll gain valuable international work experience.
