We are excited to announce – in partnership with Be Humanitarian – a service adventure you won’t forget. This one-of-a-kind “voluntour” will immerse you in the Guatemalan Maya culture and open your eyes to how others live in the world. 

As a volunteer in Guatemala you will build connections with your group and the Guatemalan people. We believe there is value in service on both ends. Not only as a volunteer will you grow but you will also help the communities in which we serve grow. By serving these communities, you are making a difference now and for generations to come. Here are a few ideas of what we do…. we prepare breakfast and lunch, plant gardens, volunteer in the local community, deliver hundreds of pounds of books, backpacks and school supplies to our preschool and local school, offer love and hope to all those we come in contact with and have an absolute blast!
