Why volunteer in Granada, Nicaragua?

Granada, Nicaragua is an ideal location for volunteering for your whole family:  it is beautiful and safe, well-located next to many day-trip attractions, full of quality home rentals and is host to many worthy organizations that are doing meaningful front-line social work with children and families.

Volunteers from around the world arrive year round to offer their time and skills to non-profit organizations that require no program fees to participate.  Families with small and grown children spend days, months and sometimes up to a year immersing themselves in Nicaraguan life, culture and language while finding personal satisfaction dedicating their work hours to their volunteer projects.

What about the Spanish?
