WHY WE EXIST

English is a required skill for Mexicans who hope to be competitive for careers. Although English instruction is mandatory, it is deficient with only 4% of Mexicans actually having a working proficiency in the language.

WHAT WE DO

In partnership with Teach for Mexico (ExM), volunteers are placed in ExM classrooms supporting teachers during English classes. Volunteers also get to know the Mexican culture, improve or acquire their Spanish, learn the local customs, and grow professionally and personally.

HOW WE’RE TACKLING THIS ISSUE

We believe that all children in Mexico deserve a quality bilingual education where they can acquire the skills needed to become competitive and have life options. Having native English speaking volunteers teaching English is one of the most efficient ways to develop these skills in students.

“DO NOT FOLLOW WHERE THE

PATH MAY LEAD.

Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”
