Minga House is a non-profit Colombian foundation dedicated to the service learning engagement between foreign volunteers and our Colombian Coffee Region Communities through collectively solving real-life community challenges. Some roles are structured internships/externships and other roles are flexible volunteering spots. There is no better way to learn a new culture and to practice your Spanish than to immerse yourself into a well-defined role integrated into the community. Upon hearing your interest and understanding your professional background we are able to place you into the right volunteering and/or internship opportunities either within Minga House or with one of our local partner organizations. You may serve in a single site and/or combine 2 or more sites for an agreed-upon amount of time. Our professional bilingual staff will ensure you are ​SAFE, LEARNING, and having FUN!
