Frequently Asked Questions

General

Education

  • Can I volunteer?

    Yes! PILAglobal is looking for volunteers to work in their Nest locations in Greece and Mexico. As a “Nester,” you’ll join local teachers in working directly with children in the classroom for a shift typically ranging from one week to three months and receive ongoing training and mentorship throughout. Visit PILAglobal’s website to learn more.

  • How many children and families are you serving?

    Since its inception in 2018, PILAglobal has enrolled 5,000 children and families in school programs, parenting workshops, and parent & me programs. PILAglobal currently operates 17 classrooms in 5 countries, spanning 3 continents and has provided over 100,000 hours of education worldwide.

  • How do you decide where to work?

    The UNHCR estimates that there are currently over 3.7 million migrant and refugee children worldwide who do not have access to education. When considering where to focus its efforts, PILAglobal prioritizes areas with a high density of young children who have zero access to education and only work in collaboration with established community organizations who provide a physical space, assist with daily operations, and offer invaluable local knowledge.
