IMIFAP “Yo quiero yo puedo” Volunteer Service Trip

June 7th, 2011

IMIFAP “Yo quiero, yo puedo,” gives volunteers the opportunity to participate in international field work with established projects in the areas of youth development and microenterprise.
IMIFAP “Yo quiero, yo puedo” has a solid reputation of delivering high-impact training and programming to marginalized communities throughout Mexico for over 25 years. Our mission is to create and implement programs which contribute to sustainable human development in order to allow individuals to take control of their own health, productivity, and lives. With over 200 established partners and 24 ongoing projects, IMIFAP “Yo quiero, yo puedo” has the network and know-how to offer volunteers a valuable volunteer experience. IMIFAP has a range of preventative and community building programs, which have impacted over 19 million people in Mexico, the United States, Uzbekistan and 11 other countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Volunteers will work in Hidalgo, Mexico alongside a team of IMIFAP program leaders and community members. IMIFAP offers a custom-built volunteer experience, allowing volunteers to choose their area of focus and the week-long period they would like to volunteer over the summer. Volunteer projects are offered in Youth Development: working with disadvantaged children to improve life skills, promote healthy development, and prevent drug use and teen pregnancy; or Microenterprise: working with a local bakery or water purification plant to develop and enhance business goals and strategies. Volunteers will gain valuable field experience, skills, and knowledge to enhance their academic and professional careers.
We, at IMIFAP “Yo quiero, yo puedo”, would like to extend a special offer to volunteers. This summer, volunteers may take advantage of discounted prices for their week-long service trip, as this is the first summer the organization will be operating international volunteer service trips. The trip costs $779.00 per volunteer, and includes on-site volunteer training and orientation; all accommodations; in-country transportation and meals; cultural activities and experiences; and project-specific Spanish classes.
