Are you interested in Construction and Renovation work where you can contribute to vital building and renovation projects that help improve the lives of local people? Participate in this program to help underserved communities in Mexico improve their infrastructure and amenities throughout the town. Numerous areas in Tepoztlan have been around for a long time and require significant improvements. Our objective is to assist the local community as a whole by upgrading various areas such as schools, communal spaces, churches, and homes to make them safer, healthier, and more functional for the people who use them. You can gain hands-on experience while engaging with the local community and immersing yourself in Mexican culture. Construction and renovation projects provide participants with valuable building experience while also improving the infrastructure of rural towns.


  • Improve the quality of life for underprivileged citizens in the area.
  • Assist the locals on daily construction and renovation tasks as an organized team.
  • Connect and create local multicultural exchange experiences that both locals and participants can benefit from.
  • Gain practical experience in constructing and renovating spaces.


Volunteer experiences have a direct and positive impact on local communities by injecting money into the local economy through the purchase of food, transportation, and tourism activities. Volunteering is a great way to give back to the comunity and make a difference in the world. Depending on the type of volunteer experience you are interested in, your time can be spent improving educational resources and opportunities, providing medical services to underserved communities, or promoting environmental conservation and sustainable farming techniques.
