Volunteers who stay longer than 6 months can apply for the position of Volunteer Coordinator. This position includes food and lodging paid by One, two… tree! A stay of more than six months in Mexico, Guatemala or the Dominican Republic does not guarantee free board and lodging. You must first submit your application, go through two interviews with the NGO officials and, if you are finally selected, you will be able to access this position and its benefits.
These volunteers give English classes and coordinate the project in Mexico, Guatemala or the Dominican Republic with the help of Pedro, the Director of One, two…tree! Places for these types of volunteers are limited because we have to adjust to each year’s budget. However, we are continuously looking for people who will commit themselves for a long period of time.
Helping children while living an international experience for more than six months is exciting because you will be more involved in the projects, with more interesting roles and more responsibility. Your work will be especially useful and therefore more rewarding. And best of all, you will be part of this family!
Long-term volunteers are important to us. We reserve for you the most comfortable houses and we are in direct contact, solving any issue as soon as possible. We offer private Spanish classes with special discounts
If you are a volunteer and stay more than six months, you will have free accommodation, including three meals a day, a single room, hot water and internet access. We will also provide you with free transport from (and to) the airport.
We offer letters of recommendation, certificate of stay as a volunteer or recommendations on Linkedin.

You can contact us if you have any other needs that we can help you with.
