About Us

Who are we?

The Institute of Modern Spanish was founded in 1995. We provide top quality educational programs – specializing in Spanish language and Mexican culture instruction and immersion. As part of our dedication to learning through serving, we have offered volunteer opportunities to students since 2005. Through our dedicated staff, we provide quality support to volunteers in a variety of programs. A decade of feedback attests to our students’ top-notch experiences in volunteering and cultural immersion. Based on this – now through Volunteer Inn Mexico – we have opened our doors to volunteers from all walks of life, to people who want to learn and serve while living in Mexico.
