12 Day Service Vacation

Our mission is to inspire our volunteers to become global citizens and take a hands-on role in the world around them. We believe our duty is to improve the lives of those in need. We aim to improve the future of some of Guatemala’s most impoverished people, and help them to break the poverty cycle through early nutrition, education and self sustainability.

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!

Where do we stay?

We often stay in AirB&B’s for group trips so we can have a home base where we meet for breakfast each morning and dinner each evening. There will be room sharing opportunities for those who are interested in spending less on lodging, but we can provide private rooms for everyone upon request.

Do we share rooms?

Usually. If you would like to purchase a single room we can accommodate for an additional fee. We typically share a large house so that we can share our meals but also have many options that would allow everyone on your team to have their own private room.

What types of service projects do we do?

Depending on what time of year we are going we may be assisting with gardening, painting or even building within the community. We will always play with, read with and laugh with our community and there are projects for people of all skill levels.

Can we bring items to donate to the community?

Absolutely! We will provide a list of items that are needed and if you would like to pack extra suitcases and bring them with you, we encourage it. We may also have pre-packed suitcases we can get you if you are flying out of Utah.

What is the weather like?

It is spring like weather where we visit. We encourage you to bring layers as it gets a bit chilly in the early mornings and evenings.

What is the food like?

Be prepared to eat delicious locally grown fresh food. We hire local women to prepare our meals and we will eat at local restaurants. There are plenty of meat and non-meat options and we can handle many food restrictions. Just let our team know.

Is the water safe to drink?

No. We only drink bottled and filtered water while in Guatemala.
