  • Description


    We are a young family that spends time travelling and don't really fit into the "traditional" school setting. We are looking for assistance in homeschooling our son (in English with basic French) based out of a small village in rural Mexico. Our son is challenged with Autism. His biggest challenge is that he is "technically" non-verbal despite being able to communicate "perfectly" in English and Spanish (with some French).

    We can provide a VERY authentic Mexican experience with access to lots of GREAT adventure activities to do during free time. the enchanting village of Jalcomulco is an adventure paradise with access to whitewater rafting, kayaking, climbing, trekking. The village is quaint, clean, secure, friendly and fun.

    We are looking for a candidate that would enjoy taking on this project from Mid-Feb to Mid-May 2019.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The TRUE Mexico is found beyond the beaches in the small rural communities. Jalcomulco is an eclectic town where adventure tourism has become its secondary industry. Workawayers will have an opportunity to be entrenched in the community and spend time with local townspeople.
