Help and volunteer in a childcare project in Guatemala.

The working with kids program in Guatemala provides individual attention and assistance to children from underprivileged homes and communities. Many children at the projects we work with are affected by a challenging home life, little to no schooling and alcohol and drug abuse within their families. Volunteers will work in after school programs, daycares, orphanages and schools. Volunteers play an important role in working alongside local Spanish-speaking staff to improve the educational, emotional, and physical conditions of the children.

The children at the projects we work with require a lot of care, attention and most importantly, companionship. Work varies but generally consists of providing individual attention, playing with children, organizing games and activities, educating children regarding hygiene and nutrition, and assisting with homework. Volunteers are encouraged to use their skills and interests to develop workshops such as music and dance, jewelry making, aerobics, arts and crafts, etc.

Participants are supported by our in-country coordinators but they are not on site at your project every day. Participants should expect their childcare project to feel disorganized, understaffed, and underfunded. In fact, this is why they need volunteers! The children are always happy to see volunteers and are very welcoming. Enthusiasm and creativity are truly needed and appreciated.
