ProMexico Semester Development Projects

The projects are an integral part of what makes ProMexico study abroad so different from other semester programs. Students engage in community projects throughout the semester. Semester projects are chosen by Site Directors based on the needs of communities. Some project options include:
  • Teach sales-based English to Zapotec women in a weaving cooperative
  • Work at local health clinic 
  • Work on a state-wide AIDS awareness campaign
  • Help educate rural women of their reproductive rights
  • Help promote local agriculture and provide nutrition education
  • Support rural primary school teachers in the classroom
  • Work with community museums seeking grants and assisting with eco-tourism projects
  • Work as a tutor, teaching adults to read and write through an adult literacy program
  • Support local environmental protection projects
  • Work with local NGO to help provide basic nutrition and hygiene information to the poor
