Volunteer Program and Housing

Munoz as a community is happy to host Project Esperanza volunteers. Our volunteer house is located just down the street from the Fair Trade Art Shop (which has internet) and the United Brothers School of Munoz. Volunteers are served meals three times a day, cooked by a wonderful Haitian lady from the community that fills all the food with lots of Creole spices and love. 

Our biggest volunteer season is in the summer with the ¨Cambia Mis Estrellas¨ (Change My Stars) English Summer Camp. Kids from the surrounding regions come to our daily English camp to play games, do activities, and learn English in fun and exciting ways. Their excitement and laughter is contagious. You can´t help but improve your Spanish too! Visit the blog for our Summer Camp here

However, volunteers are welcome in Munoz year round to participate in our many community and educational initiatives. There are also spring break opportunities for structured volunteer activities. The rest of the year, volunteers are assisted in their activities as much as they like by the Volunteer Coordinator that lives in the house, but are also given as much independence as they like to pursue projects or work with the community. Spanish and Creole are helpful and occassionally necessary, but rest assured that you will at the very least pick up a few phrases before you leave us! The Munoz community is very friendly, welcoming, and always happy to help volunteers with their Spanish and or Creole (as well as eager to practice their English-!). 

Join us for an incredible volunteer experience in Munoz, making a difference in an important and significant cause while immersed in an interesting and fun culture!
