Mini volunteer week experience

Mini Volunteer Week Experience


Designed with the Vacationer, Expat, and Snowbird in the Manzanillo area in mind, a Project Amigo Mini Work Week is an opportunity to take a break from the heat and enjoy the beautiful, cool highlands, close to the volcano.

This hands-on experience allows you to visit our facilities, the migrant workers’ camp, University Student housing and more. You will spend time with our students and Project Amigo staff and see how we can help alleviate poverty through education.

Your Mini Volunteer Week includes pickup and dropoff in Manzanillo, one-night accommodation, all meals, snacks and non-alcoholic beverages, materials, transportation, special events, fieldtrips and full-time support of our bilingual Canadian Coordinators.
