Volunteer Work in Guatemala
Tailored volunteering placements. Pre-departure Spanish lessons included.
Why volunteer abroad?
Join a volunteer placement in Guatemala and experience a country of immense beauty with soaring volcanoes, ancient Mayan ruins and colourful colonial towns.
However, there are deep-rooted problems from chronic malnutrition to a lack of educational opportunities. We connect volunteers with charities dedicated to the development of Guatemala.
Types of volunteering projects
Volunteer at any time of the year. Flexible project durations.
Volunteer in healthcare, education, human rights, environmental conservation or economic development. Work in an area that interests you and where you can make a tangible difference.
It is equally important to us that both yourself and the host charity benefits from your time abroad. We take the time to fully understand your skills and reasons for volunteering, to then build a unique volunteering profile for you. This profile is used to match you to tailored projects which benefit both yourself and the charity you will be volunteering with.
Our volunteer programs are with charities in Guatemala tackling far-reaching social, human and environmental issues. Work alongside local professionals to exchange skills, cultures and experiences.
All backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
