In the state of Michoacan, the low level of education, the deficiency of environmental awareness and the lack of intercultural engagement have hindered the development of local economy. This situation affects all levels of the society. For that reason, the institute of Tecnologico de Morelia engages in the efforts of organizing activities with the international volunteers and their students to promote entrepreneurship, multiculturalism and create a global vision. The institute has developed a methodology which helps creating life projects for the youth. For that purpose they focus on the prevention of bullying, dropping out of school and early pregnancies. On the other hand, there are environmental problems that require immediate action such as extinction of certain species of trees and animals due to deforestation and habitat loss. These two aforementioned issues will be the main focus of the workcamp.
The volunteers will be working with the students from the institute of Tecnologico de Morelia with the following schedule (daily from 09:00 until 14:00); 3rd July: Arrival of the volunteers, welcoming activities and orientation, organization of the tasks 4th and 5th July: Training at the ecological ranch “La Planta” where they will be working with children and adolescents 6th July: Leisure activities for the weekend, visiting “Pueblos Magicos” (traditional ancient villages); Patzcuaro, Santa Clara del Cobre, Cuanajo 7th July: Free day 8th-12th July: Organizing workshops and lectures about entrepreneurship, life projects, prevention of bullying, environmental awareness and multiculturalism with the children and the adolescents from elementary and middle public schools 13th July: Leisure activity, cultural tour “Purepecha” (indigenous community), visiting the villages of Quiroga, Santa Fe de la Laguna and Tzintzuntzan 14th July: Free day 15th July: Reforestation of ecological reserve “Cerro del Punhuato” 16th July: Departure of the volunteers
