On a Build to Mexico, the opportunity to make a difference meets beautiful Mexican culture in the rural countryside of Baja California. During your time with us, you’ll meet new friends and create lasting memories while working with a family to help build them a safe home. On top of that, you’ll have the chance to take part in a local excursion while trying some of the best, authentic Mexican cuisine around!
After being greeted by our staff at the San Diego airport, you’ll spend the night in Chula Vista and head down to San Quintin in the Baja Peninsula. Once we show you around the communities that we work in, we’ll introduce you to the family that you will be building alongside. Then, at the end of the week, you’ll be able to celebrate together as they enter their new home for the first time.
Over the years, people like you have joined us to help build homes, schools, and clinics in the area nearby.
We’re thrilled you’re interested in learning more about how you can help make a difference in Mexico. Please read through the following information and feel free to contact us at any time if you have questions about our Builds.
Dates, fundraising goal and ‘not included costs’ are to be confirmed by February 1st, 2024. Any modifications to the travel dates will be confirmed once airline flight schedules are available and every effort will be made to have Build dates complement WestJet’s flight schedule. Any changes to the fundraising goal and the ‘not included’ costs will be no more than +/- 10% of what is currently listed and will be in response to changes in the local costs of materials and services.

While volunteering in Mexico you will be staying at our campus near Vicente Guererro. Rooms are dorm style, however, private accommodations can be arranged for families if needed.
Most volunteers choose to fundraise using their my.livedifferent.com fundraising page. When you register for a Build, you will have the opportunity to create one too. Not everyone fundraises though, some choose to pay for their Build themselves.
