What volunteer opportunities are available locally?
A bit limited because we have to stay in our "green zone" and can't go to the poorer parts of the city. Check with the Women's Forum (a group of local women leaders, linked to the Consulate) for current volunteer opportunities. Some people volunteer on the Laredo side (animal shelter, network to support foster children). - Jun 2018
The women's forum has all the connections to NGOs to do volunteer work. - Apr 2017
Animal shelters on both sides of the border. Orphanage in Nuevo Laredo. Youth group in Nuevo Laredo. - Feb 2016
There are orphanages, animal shelters, churches and womens shelters that welcome volunteers. - Dec 2015
Yes, there are with orphanages, animal shelters and the like. You should speak Spanish though. Some people have found all kinds of things to do. On the surface these things are hard to find because there isn't really a driving force behind things to do. - Jun 2014
