We can organize an incredible volunteer experience for international groups sized 5-20. Volunteers stay with local families in a rural town in Guatemala and participate in innovative, community based projects. Room, board, and all activities included in low per person price. Activities include building and helping rural schools, restoring community parks, working in public library, and teaching in schools. Spanish lessons provided at additional charge. Mayan Ruin tour of Yaxha or Tikal included.

Our program works best with volunteers who can commit 4-12 weeks of service. Our staff is experienced with training and working with volunteers. We can train volunteers in numerous areas of interest including best management practices, approaches to education, problems that affect Guatemala, possible solutions to various problems, and most importantly, culture. All our staff are native of San Andres, have spent most of their life working with archaeologists, maintaining the construction projects, and protecting the ecological reserve.

Volunteers can and are expected to take part in all program areas, and should not limit themselves to working in one particular area. Typical work days run from 8am-12 noon Monday through Friday. Four caretakers and the director run programs on a daily basis ranging from light construction, to trail maintenance, to gardening, to teaching. Afternoons are typically spent studying Spanish, running errands, teaching, participating in activities, or continuing work in ecological park. Activities include field trips, movie night, and working in the community library.

Cost is $85 per week for room, board, all activities, airport pick-up and trip to Mayan ruins.
