01.06.2012 - 31.08.2012
The summer is officially drawing to a close. School has started, you can’t get a seat on the bus and volunteers have to make 3x as many copies as before. I’m looking forward to an end to the rainy season. It’s been a whirlwind 3 ½ months of volunteering and traveling that have seen lots of awesome changes for Casa HOY and its volunteers. We’ve moved our volunteer house downtown, opened up several great projects around Cuernavaca and in surrounding cities and acquired new staff members.
Volunteers from the US, China, England, Canada, the Czech Republic and Australia joined us to work in our English teaching, childcare, environmental and computer tutoring programs. When they weren’t volunteering and exploring Cuernavaca, participants took advantage of their free time to travel to the neighboring cities of Mexico City, Puebla, Tepoztlán, Taxco and Oaxaca. We’ve put together a slideshow to commemorate the end of our summer months, while looking forward to having our fall volunteer participants!
