Volunteer participants, ages 16 - 55, spend two to twelve
weeks experiencing day-to-day life with Mexican host families. Through
this simple, yet very personal, exchange of ideas both guests and hosts
learn a great deal about each other and themselves!
This program is most suitable for mature applicants who are prepared to
spend some time exploring their host community independently. Programs
vary in length from two to twelve weeks, and can be enjoyed throughout
the year, based on host family availability.
Orientation, support and supervision by a CICU local Coordinator
Community Service Option
The Volunteer Program Option is an excellent way for
independent Homestay participants to meet people, make friends, and
become quickly familiar with the area.
Participants in this program also gain the satisfaction
that comes with making a meaningful contribution to their host community
and helping those in need. CICU will arrange for a participant to
volunteer on a service project in their host community. The community
service assignment generally includes 10 to 25 hours of volunteer
activity per week. There is a small additional fee for this service.
Projects are available in the following general areas:*
Working with the elderly or disabled
Programs for poor communities
CICU may be able to accommodate special requests for
projects in other areas such as:
English Tutoring Option
