About

ISL’s Baja Mexico Program offers a truly unique low cost and high impact volunteer experience for individuals or teams of any size.

The starting point for ISL’s Baja Mexico Program is Phoenix AZ, an easy flight from all major U.S. cities.  Volunteers meet with ISL staff in Phoenix and are escorted to Puerto Peñasco, Mexico, situated along the beautiful Sea of Cortez, a relaxing four hour drive away through the scenic Sonoran Desert.  As a trade-off for the initial drive, once we arrive at the program site, travel to and from activities is usually less than 15 minutes.  Volunteers must arrive in Phoenix before 3 pm on their scheduled arrival day and depart after 12:00 noon on their scheduled departure day in order to catch the shuttle to and from Mexico.
 
ISL’s work in Baja Mexico is an on-going humanitarian project. Though Puerto Peñasco is a safe tourist area, due to high unemployment and high numbers of newly deported nationals struggling to get home, it also houses a very large underserved community. We work with global health agencies, local health ministries, and other NGOs to build capacity in needy communities. Because our work in Puerto Peñasco is continual, when an ISL team is scheduled for Baja, it is a “go” regardless of how many volunteers apply. Volunteers are able to gain valuable experience regardless of team size, participating in community clinics and working in institutional and community
