The information on this page is for prospective volunteers who aren't interested in teaching at Mayatan.

Learning Abroad at Mayatan

High school students (ages 14+ and recent graduates can have the adventure of a lifetime and make a difference in the world by spending a few weeks at Mayatan Bilingual School. We offer an authentic experience volunteering in classrooms, studying Spanish, and learning local culture by living with a host family. It is sure to be the learning experience of a lifetime, and prior Spanish language skills are not required. Learn more.


Specialist Volunteers

A number of people have come down to Honduras to spend a week, a month, or even longer assisting Mayatan.

For example, Viki Defferding, of George Fox University, took a sabbatical here and helped develop our Spanish-language curriculum.

Other visitors have assisted us by re-cataloging and re-shelving library books and designing and building playground equipment.

Speaking Spanish is not necessary, though coming to Honduras would provide you with a wonderful opportunity to practice. If you would be interested in long-term volunteer projects, please send an e-mail to: info@mayatanfoundation.org


Administrative Volunteers

From time to time, Mayatan Bilingual School has openings for long-term, non-teaching administrative volunteers. For example, this website was created by a long-term volunteer. If you have particular skills that you'd like to share with Mayatan, from technology to construction to fundraising and beyond, please contact us at info@mayatanfoundation.org and let us know how you might be able to help.
