Volunteer with Maya!

We are looking for talented, enthusiastic, and forward-thinking individuals to join our team.

Volunteers have a large impact on running the day-to-day operations in our schools. We match your interests with the schools’ needs. Volunteers participate in teaching, construction work, agriculture, and administration.

TEACHING

Volunteer teachers are expected to commit a minimum of two months at one of the locations. We give priority to those with teaching experience. Design and conduct your classes according to our curriculum. Teachers are expected to share and report back progress and challenges to the team.

AGRICULTURE

Maya has its own organic vegetable and fruit farms. Work includes ploughing, sewing, watering and maintaining, and harvesting. You may also assist in feeding chickens, pigs, and goats. No experience is required. Knowledge in farming and permaculture is a bonus!

CONSTRUCTION

We are constantly improving our facilities and making space for new students. Construction work is led by locals where you will assist in digging, breaking stones, carrying materials. No experience required but its an added benefit!

Administrative duties can include data entry, improving systems, typing reports and examination papers. Long-term volunteers are encouraged to be proactive in recommending roles they can manage such as volunteer house coordinator, kitchen duty leader.
