Serve at Farm of the Child – A Catholic Children’s Home, School, and Clinic in Honduras

Posted on:
Start: Aug 1, 2023 / End: Not Applicable / Location: Honduras

Three ways to join our mission:

Option 1: Long-term Service Program – 16 months – Spanish Helpful, not Required

August 1st, 2023 – December 4th, 2024

Our long term program participants (“misioneros” y “misioneras”) commit to 16 months with our mission, starting with language school in August of each year. Most work in some capacity in our K-9 school as English, special education, and/or kindergarten teachers, while medical professionals work alongside our medical staff at our on-site clinic. We also have needs for those with specialized skills including engineering and construction. All of our misionero/as also serve in a variety of capacities to keep our organization running and thriving, including working with our after-school and vocational training/preparation programs. All partake in the faith life of our community and walk alongside our kids. Some of these folks discern to stay for an additional year or more. We welcome individuals and families.

Applications for our long-term service program are accepted on a rolling basis, and we’re still seeking 2023-24 applicants.

Option 2: Summer Program – 10 weeks – Spanish Required

June 1st – August 8th, 2023

Our “summer vols” come down for 8-10 weeks over the summer and serve in many of the same capacities as above. They commonly step into teaching roles in our school and serve alongside our long-term volunteers. Some years we have space for someone to help out in our clinic as well. We’re also open to exploring other ideas if you have a specific skill set you’d like to share.

Applications for our summer program are accepted on a rolling basis, and we’re still seeking applicants for this summer.

Option 3: Interested, but on a different timeline?

Reach out anyway! We may have some specific needs outside of our standard programs’ timeframes and would love to hear more. Bonus points if you already speak Spanish.
