“Thanks for letting me go out with the mobile project. It was great! Every time I went, it made me feel like Santa Claus.”
-Peter, American student taking Spanish classes in SJDS
There are many ways that you can help out the San Juan del Sur Biblioteca Móvil. One of the most rewarding ways is travel to Nicaragua and volunteer on-site in San Juan del Sur. Our project is expanding every month, bringing the joy of reading to many more people, and we can always use an extra hand! If you’re looking for a retirement project, taking a year off school, or just want to occupy yourself and travel at the same time, then volunteer. Our application outlines areas of expertise and special consideration is given to long-term volunteers and/or those with needed skills. These may include library and information science, computer skills, web development, teaching, and fluency in Spanish.
Our program was featured in the most recent edition of Moon Handbooks Nicaragua, along with other available volunteer opportunities in the area.
When you come, we can arrange a home-stay or hotel-stay at reasonable prices. Volunteer projects include working with our very fundamental library system, teaching English, facilitating craft classes and working on the mobile unit. It’s simple!
