Expats and Volunteers?

I'm a Canadian with basic Spanish skills who is moving to Medellin in early December with my husband. I would like to volunteer as well as find an expat group.

Any ideas are welcomed! Gracias!

Hola HKinley

I'm not aware of any "expat" volunteering jobs but this is an excellent ONG you can try...

Thanks Marcela.

I'll check into the organization when I arrive in Medellin. You have an excellent blog, and I've bookmarked it for future reference.

I've kept a blog of our travels over the last 3 years as my husband has worked on various projects around the world - you can check it out at www.kinleytravels.blogspot.com

Thanks again.
