Professional Servicce Exchange Program
The Ixtatán Foundation brings professional volunteers to teach at the educational program in San Mateo Ixtatán, thus, providing an exchange between local and foreign knowledge. The professional will volunteer his time at least six months to work with a school in San Mateo Ixtatán teaching English, Chemistry, or Mathematics or helping to design socio-economic development programs that can help segments of the populations such as women, youth, children, etc. In exchange the volunteer professional will be provided shelter and food by a San Mateo family through the network of families created by the foundation.
The volunteer program is open to professionals from other countries that are willing to invest in a rural community and in exchange gain a unique experience and insightful understanding of indigenous communities. The Seeds of Wisdom School has welcomed professionals from the United States, Spain, Argentina, Colombia, Chile, France and Korea.
