Everyone must bring different personal types of clothing for the different seasons and weather we have in Cuernavaca and Miacatlan, Morelos. The following items are recommended to bring: Umbrellas, sweaters and jackets, shorts, sandals, tennis shoes, caps or hats (sombreros), etc... sometimes the participants will be having excursions and/or trips within the town and out of town and the weather varies.

Typical Volunteer

Our previous participants have become acquainted not only with the language, but also with the culture, the costumes and traditions of Mexico in a daily basis, now, regarding taking care of the children at the orphanage, it can vary a lot depending on the desire of each participant. For instance, there are several ages and areas where a volunteer can help, it could be by taking care to little babies of 0 months old, all the way up to 17 years old. That's why the participants get an orientation right upon their arrival to Cuernavaca in order for them to decide which area to be part of.
