Pro-Street Children is an institution with the following mission: “Understanding and assisting children and teenagers living in the streets, accompanying them in a gradual process which allows them to choose a different option of life”. Pro-Niños gives assistance to boys between the age of 10 and 17 years how are living on the streets of Mexico City for a long time. To accomplish our mission, the kids - or “Los chavos” as they call them - participate in a process consisting of three different steps, designed to help them decide on their own, that the street is no longer the place in which they want to live.
The different stages are
1. Street work
2. Day Center
3. Alternative Options of Life
The volunteers collaborate in the educative area from Monday to Friday from 8:00 in the morning to 5:00 in the afternoon, supporting our educators in the direct work with the “chavos” - boys that live on the streets-.
The actual tasks can vary according to the projects current needs and depend on the volunteers own initiative.
Accommodation & Food is provided by the project. From Monday to Friday, the breakfast and the lunch are prepared at the project. The volunteers are going to cook their own dinner and the meals from Monday to Sunday.
