Join Us in Giving Back to the Local Community
The String Cheese Incident’s International Incident and Conscious Alliance are teaming up to give back to local communities in Mexico this February! We’ve got our eyes set on the small village of Akumal, Mexico — a community located 25 minutes from the Riviera Maya resort where the International Incident is taking place.
Hekab Be Biblioteca is Akumal’s local library, where they also host an after-school program for the local children. This after school program serves as a safe haven for children ages 3-12, offering classes and activities including language classes, music and art programs, yoga and sports, and more.
International Incident Service Project Revealed – Sign Up Now!
Conscious Alliance has revealed its International Incident Service Project details!
We’re currently recruiting 15 attendees to participate on Thursday, February 20 from 1:30PM – 4:30PM for a Service Project to support the Hekab Be Biblioteca of Akumal.
The most important thing the Hekab Be Biblioteca of Akumal provides for the community is an active after school program for the local children. Their goal is to keep the children engaged and excited about learning so they will stay in school and have the opportunity for whatever future they wish to pursue.
As the village of Akumal grows and more tourists come to the area, the urban sprawl has reached their little library that sits on a prime piece of land on the road into Akumal. The Library needs to relocate their beloved “cancha” or sports field, where the children practice and play basketball, soccer, and other activities.
You can help! The back area of Hekab Be Biblitoteca’s land is overgrown with weeds and trees, and is gathering rainwater. Join us to help clear the land, build it up to appropriate level, fill it in with material, and relocate the basketball goals to make it an adequate play space for the children.
Sign up now by emailing Support@consciousalliance.org. We can accommodate 15 volunteers – first come, first serve.
Art Supplies Drive – Bring Items to Donate!
Don’t Forget the Art Supplies Drive! Please consider contributing to the Hekab Be Biblioteca community by packing a few art supplies in your luggage to donate to the Library. Donation bins will be located in the lobby of the resort, where you can drop supplies any time.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to working together to support the local community in Mexico!
