Volunteer work description:

Reinforcement [Level of Spanish: intermediate or advanced]

3 time per week (Afternoons 2pm -4pm)

"Refuerzos" is an after school program that is very hands on and interactive with smaller groups of students. It is focused on reinforcing certain topics with students that are struggling during regular classes. Volunteers involved in this program find it extremely rewarding as they build strong relationships with a small amount of students and can see them progressing right in front of their eyes. There is a little more flexibility with this program as the volunteer can choose which days in the afternoon they would like to come in however it is recommended to do this program simultaneously with the Morning Teacher’s Assistant Program.

Tutorías [Level of Spanish: intermediate or advanced]

Personalised schedule and a minimum of 8 week commitment

Tutorías Program is one of the most involving programs on offer as you develop a close relationship with 2 -3 children. Volunteers are matched with students who experience learning disabilities and due to your long time commitment, is an extremely rewarding experience for both child and volunteer. You will meet several times a week to work on personalized material given by the Academic Coordinator and will help them to grasp concepts from class that they need extra assistance with.

Mission Statement

NDG is a Dutch-Guatemalan nonprofit working to break the cycle of poverty in Guatemala by providing quality education to those who need it most. Since our founding in 2006, we have opened two primary schools and one Secondary school, Nuestro Futuro, El Porvenir and Básico, which now serve more than 525 Guatemalan children from low-income families in the towns of Ciudad Vieja and San Lorenzo de Cubo.


NDG’s motto has always been that everyone can do something. Dedicated volunteers are key to our mission of breaking the cycle of poverty through education in Guatemala. Through our program, you can get off the beaten track and experience Antigua’s wonderful, culture, people, and landscapes, all while giving back in our schools.

Our volunteers come from all types of backgrounds and range in age from eighteen to sixty. We have an average of five people volunteering with us at any given time. During high season, however, there may be as many as fifteen volunteers in our programs at once.
