BorderLinks' Special Focus delegations travel to Chiapas, the Copper Canyon, and Mata Ortiz, in Mexico, and focus on issues of education, sustainability, detention, and indigenous concerns. Delegations are specially designed to offer unique opportunities for both returning participants who have previously engaged in a BorderLinks program and for first time participants looking for an alternative to the regular BorderLinks delegation experience.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with BorderLinks! We appreciate the time and talent that our many volunteers have donated to help BorderLinks further its mission.
There are a variety of projects here at BorderLinks that are specifically designed for short-term volunteers. Some of these projects include: cooking for delegation groups of 10-20 people, gardening tasks, education research projects, mailings, and translating/interpreting. Please first read over this list and determine whether your interests and talents meet our organization’s needs. Next, we ask that you fill out and submit an application form found at the bottom of this page.

Based on the current needs of the organization, there may be a possibility to design a special internship or volunteer project! If you are a high school, university, or gradute student, we may be able to design a credit-bearing internship for you, depending on the requirements of your institution.
