By joining our volunteer program in Guatemala you can help small community daycares and community centers have extra support when taking care of children from low income communities.
In the childcare program in Guatemala you will be working around 6 hours per day Monday to Friday with children ranging from 2-7 years of age, whose parents work and don’t have anywhere to send them to during the day. Working with children requires energy and creativity as most of the work is around keeping the children entertained through songs, games, and basic educational activities like teaching numbers, colors, etc.
Also, you will support the staff at the daycare in Guatemala by helping them with cleaning up for the children, cooking food, making educational games and keeping the place tidy.
Arrival to the program are most Sundays.
On arrival you are greeted by our friendly coordinators and taken to your accommodation. Next day you meet with all the volunteers and interns that came the previous days for orientation.
In orientation we cover topics like:
-Do’s and dont’s in the country
-How to get around and weekend travel
-Communication, SIM cards , and currency.
-Social meet ups with other participants.
There are no requirements for this program other than being able to communicate at the project and work well in teams.
We encourage all of our participants in our programs to travel as much as they can during the weekends. Volunteers and interns usually travel together during the weekends. Our coordinators can assist you to make travels plans
During the weekdays volunteers and interns usually spend time together after their assignments.
Spanish classes are available at an extra cost in 20 hour blocks. Monday to Friday , 4 hours per day.
