Free or Cheap Volunteer Work in Mexico


We have more projects to add here soon but in the meantime a fair amount of hostels in Mexico are willing to exchange food and a bed for help about the place.


Grassroots Volunteering in Mexico

The organisations listed below have either got in touch with us to add their details to this or another of our websites, or we otherwise have reason to believe they are actively looking for international volunteers and charge reasonable or no fees to join in, live and work with them:

Casa de los Angeles

A safe haven for the children of single, working mums who would otherwise not be able to afford daycare for their babies and young children while they work in San Miguel de Allende, in central Mexico, Casa de los Angeles welcomes volunteers that can cook, build things, teach basic hygiene or that are just good with children. Since they opened in 2000 they have never been a day without a volunteer and have welcomed 1,800 volunteers from 42 countries to be a part of the work they do.

Where: San Miguel de Allende.
Accommodation & Costs: Accommodation in their guesthouse is available for $160 donation per week or $500 per month. There is also a $50 non-refundable application donation to hold your dates.
