Who Are We?

We create the experiences that last a lifetime

Worldwide, over 1.6 million people participate in international volunteer projects each year. For their efforts, volunteers receive an intercultural experience that benefits locals as well. Volunteering gives people an opportunity to donate their talents and travel while making a difference and learning new skills. These programs are ideal for students, adult professionals, retirees, and anyone interested in cultural immersion and making a positive impact in the places where they serve.

For more that 20 years, the Institute of Modern Spanish has provided cultural immersion, travel opportunities, and volunteer experiences in Mexico. We are proud to announce a new volunteer immersion project we call “Volunteer Inn Mexico.”

Volunteer Inn Mexico builds on strong and trustworthy relationships with the many needs-based organizations that seek us out for help. Volunteers serve as teachers (especially in English), in child care services, as health care support, and in environmental and ecological projects - and in animal and vet services, as well as other organizations worthy of our assistance. For volunteers who come to us, Volunteer Inn Mexico provides 24/7 support, including housing and meals.

I truly have had an unforgettable experience here over the last month. I have been so well taken care of! A great deal of the reason I loved this program so much is because I feel like you truely care about each individual volunteer and that shows! I loved the house, my classes, and LOVED my fellow volunteers!
This was such an interesting, profound, and trans formative experience! I loved the fact that I could help kids learn a bit more English and make a difference in their lives. The friends I've made during the past month were so incredibly interesting and helpful. I couldn't ask for a better experience!
