About

We are looking for volunteers to work in our school in Jocotenango, Guatemala!

Description: The activities that students participate in outside school hours are critical to their development. We want to keep them off the streets and away from negative influences. After-school programs serve children and young people of all ages by providing them with a new way to express themselves through art, music, sport, etc. The demand for afterschool programs is strong; high quality afterschool programs generate positive outcomes including improved academic performance, classroom behaviour, and better health. The larger community also benefits when young people have safe and productive ways to spend their time while their parents are at work. You can help us do just that! You’d be running the whole show so get excited!
