Since 2004 Peace Corps Mexico has been engaged with Mexican institutions and communities in the spirit of international cooperation that is both technical and cultural in nature. We work closely with our hosts and strategic partners, including the Mexican Agency for International Development Cooperation (AMEXCID), the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT), the National Council for Science and Technology (CONACyT), and the National Network of Technological and Polytechnic Universities (CGUTyP), to design programs that address some of Mexico’s national priorities.
Peace Corps Volunteers and Peace Corps Response Volunteers from the U.S.A. are then recruited, trained, vetted, and ultimately assigned to Mexican host-communities and host-institutions to carry-out activities that contribute to the aforementioned national priorities as well as local priorities. Volunteers are also expected to adapt and integrate into Mexican society and culture while actively sharing their own identity, culture, and unique perspectives. More than 400 Volunteers have served in Mexico, collaborating in the areas of economic development, education, and the environment. The Peace Corps Mexico office is located in the city of Querétaro.
