I had a very good time at Las Colonias, and especially enjoyed getting to know first hand a different culture and way of living. You will be completely immersed in the community, living with the family and staying with the kids. I liked how every person was welcoming and caring, making me feel at home. I would definitely recommend intermediate/advanced spanish knowledge to live the full experience. Be prepared to be proactive and come up with some ways of participating in the school and community. You will definitely receive much love!

We had a very nice time in Las colonias. Everybody is so heartfelt and thankful that we were there. During our stay we played with the kids, helped the teachers or participated at community tasks like recycling the trash. We were very free to choose what we want to do. It's definitely easier if you speak Spanish because you can interact more with the kids, the teachers and the host family. We didn't speak Spanish so good, so we had to communicate a lot with our hands but it was no problem. They do everything to make you having a good time.

It was a wonderful and heartwarming experience. We felt very welcomed. Even though our Spanish is not good, they tried their best to involve us. But it is definitely easier if you speak Spanish. If you like to be around children, play with them and to pass on your knowledge about something, for example a language, this place is perfect. You will get a lot of gratitude back!

Las Colonias is a loving community. The kids are so cute and everyone is really kind. Unfortunately with my poor spanish it wasn't easy for me to understand them (they have a dialect and speak really fast, also specially the children won't make any effort to speak clearly). But somehow we could communicate. So if you want to volunteer in las Colonias it would be better if you already can speak Spanish. As a volunteer in las Colonias you have a lot of freedom. Maybe even too much 😅. You should be able to initiate an activity or be willing to teach a class, so you don't get bored.

I had the chance to stay to the organization for a bit more than two weeks and tbh felt quite good. the hosting family was quite warm and welcoming. the set of activities/actions you may do relies essentially on you. me and other volunteers choosed to teach English to the children of the community and went smoothly. overall the place is very chill, people are happy and have an easy contact :)
