About Mexico City & the Role

Mexico City is the largest city in Latin America, with approximately 21.2 million people in the entire metropolitan area. Accordingly, Mexico City is an important and strategic location for ministry outreach and church planting. It is also a city that demonstrates a clear mosaic of prosperous and poorer neighborhoods.

If your hearts break for the injustice of sex slavery, there are significant opportunities to touch the lives of these victims, each a treasure of incomparable value, who are often broken, desperate and fearful, and see no hope for a different future. Join with Mexicans in ministry in Spanish to work in efforts that help victims of sex trafficking such as prevention, advocacy, intervention, and restoration.

*Note* New staff are not always able to work directly with trafficking victims during the first 6 months of service, due to the sensitive nature of this ministry. You will be placed according to personal background, experience level and the ministry sites current needs. Placements can include the prevention team, roles in the transitional living home, basic care provider in the refuge, administrative placements, support ministry placements such as Block Party, etc.
