Ways to Help
There are many ways you can get involved in helping us in Volcanes. 
 You can help by:
  1. Help a Secondary Student continue to attend school with a US$ 300 BECAS Scholarship.  Although in theory education in Mexico is supposed to be free; once a child reaches grade 7, these children face huge costs if they wish to continue.  They will need to: pay fees simply to apply for limited spaces in the few Secondary Schools, purchase School Uniforms, pay for city bus travel to distant Secondary School locations, and many more expenses not covered.   (Click here for more information)

  2. Donate an amount to help pay for a teacher.  You can pledge either a Monthly (US$ 60) or Yearly  (US$ 600) amount that will pay the salary for a teacher.  You'll be kept up to date with information about your sponsored teacher along with their name, picture, and other contact info. (Click here for more information)

  3. Donate an amount to the VCEP.  The VCEP receives absolutely no governmental funding thus is always in need of money to pay for the everyday expenses such as School Supplies, Gas, Tires, Internet, . . .  Every penny we receive is used to continue to offer the established Programs to the children of Volcanes.  The Adopt Volcanes initiative is an attempt at providing stable funding for the teachers and programs of the VCEP.     (Click here for more information)

    Our program would not be possible without the many volunteers who support the Volcanes Community Education Project. If you are in the Puerto Vallarta area or will be visiting soon, please consider donating your time, school supplies, bilingual children's books, or any monetary contribution. Maybe there is space in your suit case for a book or two, or maybe you have funds allocated for vacation that are still available. This is one small way to give back to the community in which so many of us have fallen in love with!  Please contact us should you be available to volunteer your time in our library, classrooms, or any of our ongoing projects. 
    Paypal is a safe and easy way contribute to our cause and we are grateful for each and every donation, no matter what the amount.
