About Program

For as little as $4 a day for the first six months and completely free thereafter you can volunteer with children and youth in Guatemala. Our volunteers are an integral part of our program; a key element included in our planning. Without volunteers, we're not complete.

Our volunteers are experienced health workers who dedicate time to educating and nurturing our students. They are responsible, kind people who, through their care and nurturing, help develop these young people whilst having the adventure of a lifetime.

Working 9am to 3pm, Monday to Friday, our health volunteers support us in our onsite clinic in various roles including: Nutritionist, Psychologist, Mental Health Worker, Public Health Worker, Social Worker, Nurse Practitioner or as an Assistant in our Family Nurturing Program. They are an integral part of the team, offering specialist skills, allowing us to offer more support to the students and families in our education program.

Program Highlights

  • You can join the program on Mondays throughout the month.
  • You will have the opportunity to work with an incredibly resilient population whilst gaining professional experience.
  • You will work as part of a Guatemalan team, fully integrated into a professional academic environment.
  • You will experience the beautiful culture, traditions and languages of Guatemala.
  • You will have a strong support team around you, 24 hours a day.

Program Impact

These health roles are very important. You'll be working with a resilient population that has experienced traumas and therefore will be working with sensitive subjects. Our volunteers will be able to support the students in the way they think, feel and act, how they handle stress, how they feed their bodies, how they relate to others and how they make healthier choices in life. The work you do with them will support them today and throughout their future as they navigate adulthood and beyond.
