The Oaxaca Learning Center is a nonprofit organization in Mexico offering free academic teaching/learning services to students fourteen years and older. We assist students from low-income or impoverished urban families and from indigenous rural villages throughout the state of Oaxaca who have migrated to the capital city to complete their studies.

Whether you are in Oaxaca for a short or long visit, the Center will be happy to put you to work! They always need tutors in English, or you can sign up for an intercambio — where you can practice your Spanish while students practice their English.

For long-term volunteers, the Center will often put together a small class for English instruction.

And if you have special skills or knowledge, some volunteers design workshops to focus on the needs of students and staff.
