BPP envisions a world where local communities are able to leverage the growth of dynamic, emerging industries in their regions into economic and educational opportunities for their youth, children and families. BPP currently operates schools in towns with tourism-based economies in and around the areas of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Want to help out? We are always looking for English Teachers and Mentors for our Apprenticeship Program! We also offer a Cultural Exchange Program with Spanish Classes & Homestay, as well as Group Trips for Volunteers! There are so many ways to give back. Don't hesitate to reach out!


In addition to classes, through volunteerism, students learn to interact with diverse populations within a positive setting that helps them healthily integrate into the rising tourism industry. Volunteers also share interests such as Gardening, Sports and Yoga with students through workshops and apprenticeship programs that enhance their exposure to a variety of subjects while helping them discover their unique skills and talents. BPP bridges the gap between the growth of the tourism industry and the needs of the local population, so together we can utilize the newly arising opportunities and focus on the ultimate goal for a bright future: to Help a Child Grow. 

BPP has innovative and intuitive curriculums formed around three pillars; Creativity, Communication & Confidence. Read more about how we instill these values through English as a Second Language Classes, Elective Courses, Positive Incentives & Our Cultural Exchange Program.

BPP is an organization founded by the community we serve. BPP is run on respect, a dream for a better future and a love for education. Learn More About Our Mission, Our Community, Where We Teach, Our Incredible Team and How It All Started.

Due to limited resources, many students in Latin America only attend school for half a day. The Barrio Planta Project (BPP) provides free supplementary schooling to the children of Latin America with the goal to give them positive recreation and supervised structure during the other half of their day. BPP focuses on classes such as Art and Music that facilitate creativity, performance-based activities like Fitness and Dance that enhance confidence and curriculums that promote international communication by teaching valuable English and Computer Literacy skills. BPP believes that Creativity, Confidence, Critical Thinking and Communication Skills are essential abilities and will help our students lead happy, healthy and productive lives.
