VOLUNTEER

Human Connections relies on the support of volunteers to grow our impact. Learn more here.

DONATE

Contribute to our work from anywhere in the world! Your donation helps Human Connections grow, which allows us to collaborate with more local artisans, businesses, and organizations. As a US 501(c)(3), we issue tax receipts to US donors. More information about our fundraising campaigns can be found here.

BECOME AN ADVISOR

We are currently seeking advisors with expertise in the following areas: marketing, study abroad, or US law. For advisory board membership, we request a time commitment of 5 to 10 hours per month, spent answering questions via email, revising documents, or  workgroup calls. For more details, please contact Elly (elly@humanconnections.org). There is no expectation of financial support from advisors. 


CONNECT US TO FACULTY IN THE US & CANADA

If the interactions that HC facilitates during a 4-hour tour are powerful, imagine how transformative a week-long experience would be.

HC works with faculty from university campuses in the US and Canada to design and host weeklong trips for students.  These trips are an exceptional way for university students to broaden their perspective and gain international experience. Collaborating with students is also a deeply rewarding experience for our local partners  – everyone benefits.

While our university programs are high-impact and high-value, they are challenging for HC to promote, given that our entire staff is based in Mexico.  Unsolicited outreach to faculty in the US or Canada has not proven effective for us; communication that comes through a thoughtful connection has. Do you know anyone who works at a university in the US or Canada that might be interested in hearing about our student programs? If so, would you consider sending an email to introduce that person and our Director, Elly (elly@humanconnections.org). This is the single biggest way you can help grow our impact.

ORGANIZE A GROUP TRIP

We call them Global Engagement Trips, and can curate the itinerary to your group’s preferences. Contact us for more details at info@humanconnections.org. 

INTERN

Human Connections looks for driven and socially conscious students who are looking for an opportunity to learn what it means to run a social enterprise. We host a 3 week program in January and a 7 week program during the summer, during which interns work intimately within the local community and gain firsthand perspective on complex topics of international development.
