an immersive experience

We are looking for exceptional volunteers to devote a week of their lives to helping the kids who live at our beautiful home for children in the mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico.

The stories of these children are unimaginable. They have been abandoned, orphaned, or sent to live with us by child services after they were found living on the streets. 

While volunteering, you will help care for the children around the clock; you might help with their homework, help prepare their meals, or even help brush their teeth before bedtime.

Ultimately, by giving your time, attention, and love, your week volunteering at the Simply Smiles Home for Children will help these kids to overcome incredibly difficult starts in life to reach the bright futures they deserve.


Oaxaca is located in the southernmost region of Mexico and is a state roughly the size of New England.

During your time in Oaxaca, you will live and work at the Simply Smiles Home for Children in San Bartolo Coyotepec, a suburb of Oaxaca City. You will get a chance to experience the historic and densely-populated Oaxaca Valley with its breathtaking mountain views.

Oaxaca is rich with beauty and culture. But tragically, Oaxaca is also stricken with an extreme poverty that serves as an ever present dichotomy and a clear reminder as to why we are there. 


we're there with you

Before, during and after -  Simply Smiles staff is with you every step of the way to make sure you have a profound, impactful, and safe experience.

We work closely with you during the entire planning process. We'll meet with you, share presentations, talk through all of your questions, and make sure everyone is completely comfortable with every aspect of the trip. If you're a group leader, you'll even have your own trip planning webpage where all of the resources and communications you need are right at your fingertips.

While in Mexico, Simply Smiles will be with you 24 hours a day. Projects will be lined up, materials will be purchased, and the pantry will be stocked with your food and water. We are not just your guides; we are your partners in a shared experience and purpose.
