We rely on volunteers to keep our school and shelter running efficiently. Often foreigners visiting Granada hear about our shelter and come by to explore volunteer opportunities. We have been blessed with the help of many such volunteers over the years. Project Esperanza is a Christ-centered organization and, accordingly, we look for volunteers with Christian values. The Lord has blessed us with the opportunity to serve these children, and we want Him to be glorified in all that we do according to His purpose.

If you are interested in volunteering for a period of six months to one year, please write to us at for more information and to receive a FAQ sheet.

Volunteer activities include teaching Spanish literacy or any other subjects, Bible study, computer skills, cooking, arts & crafts, sports, health education, and sponsoring field trips. Just spending time with the kids means a great deal to them, and you can leave a lasting impression on those whose lives you have touched.

We welcome volunteers with “brazos abiertos!” (open arms)

Volunteer Eric Meyer recently presented a four-day workshop entitled “Soy Especial” (I am Special), a program designed to build self-esteem and personal awareness in our youth at Quinta Los Chavalos.
