language learning


As a University Outreach Coordinator serving in Mexico for 1-2 years (or more!), immerse yourself into a new language and culture through our Avance Program! Live with a host family, level up your Spanish skills and serve in local ministries + churches under a great team of fun & experienced leaders in Mexico City! Together with Mexican Christians, spend your life on what will outlast it in one of the largest cities of the world while growing and learning about God’s will for your life.


About the Role

Work with a seasoned ministry in the heart of the university campus with a clear strategy for outreach. Help lead English conversation clubs, Bible Studies, camp retreats and relational outreach to students. Work alongside Mexican locals in ministry using English and Spanish to befriending and reach university students for Christ. Start by learning under local leadership then work autonomously to cultivate community, activities, and outreach.

Mexico City is the largest city in Latin America, with approximately 21.2 million people in the entire metropolitan area. Mexico City is also the home to the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), the largest university in Latin America. This university serves a little over 342,542 students. The UNAM has produced many influential leaders for Mexico, Latin America and beyond. Accordingly, the campus is an important and strategic location for ministry outreach. Ciudad Universitaria (CU), UNAM’s main campus, is literally a city in and of itself. The opportunities to engage with the community and partner with local ministries on campus are abundant.

What You’ll Experience:
  • Be equipped through cross-cultural and spiritual formation training (pre- and on-field)
