Additional Info about Us

5 to 10 people

Minga House Foundation is not a party hostel! Our volunteers are here to serve & immerse themselves into the community with the utmost integrity, respect, and appreciation for the opportunity to learn & share while serving the community. We expect all of our volunteers to be committed to their identified volunteer role(s), the agreed upon schedule, and represent Minga House Foundation in a dignified manner. Our staff has valuable advice and instructions which we expect you follow during your stay for your own safety, learning, and enjoyment. Failure to engage as directed may result in immediate termination of the service agreement without refund of your service fee. Your participation costs MHF staff countless hours of planning and coordination prior to your arrival. Please come ready to 'work & serve' with enthusiasm & much flexibility.

Some roles are structured internships/externships and other roles are flexible volunteering spots. There is no better way to learn a new culture and to practice your Spanish than to immerse yourself in a well-defined role integrated into the community. Upon hearing your interest and understanding your professional background we can bring you the best experience and if you need our professional bilingual staff will ensure you are SAFE, LEARNING, and having FUN!
