The Sexto Sol Center for Community Action contributes to the elimination of poverty and the restoration of the damaged environment by promoting cooperative enterprise, environmentally sound agriculture, appropriate technology and conservation. We work in the Sierra Madre region of Chiapas, Mexico and with repatriated refugee communities in Guatemala.

Come join the adventure of applying your hands, heart, and mind to the task of creating economic justice, helping people to grow food sustainably, teaching permaculture, reforesting a mountain, and more. People with permaculture knowledge especially needed. We offer a limited number of internship opportunites to people who are interested in developing themselves for future careers in sustainable development through NGO work. Interns make a volunteer commmitment for longer time. We provide training over this time and opporunities in the field that help interns to gain an insight into NGO work.

There are several ways you can volunteer. Come pick coffee beans at Nuevo Bullaj collective coffee farm. This community of repatriated refugees needs help to harvest their coffee. It is their chance to sell this year to a socially responsible coffee company. Help is urgently needed. Nuevo Bullaj is creating an eco-lodge for eco-tourism and agro-tourism. We are looking for people with relevant management experience to help them set up the kitchen and other aspects of the hotel. You must have good spanish for this work. Come explore this region to help us find the best trekking routes, places to climb, caves, or to check out the rivers for possible kayaking. We need adventurers willing to go hunting for the best places to see.
