VOLUNTEER FOR A DAY
Are you traveling in Guatemala and don’t have the time to make a long-term commitment? Join us for a Volunteer for a Day!
This program allows visitors to volunteer just for one day at one of our schools. This is a full day of work from 7.45am through to 2pm and volunteers will be working on practical tasks the school needs help with (e.g. cleaning, cooking, gardening, preparing classroom materials etc.). The donation for the Volunteer for a Day Program is 35 USD, and it includes local transportation, typical Guatemalan lunch and full support from the Volunteer & Groups Team.
A typical Volunteer for a Day contains: an introduction to Niños de Guatemala, after which together with the Volunteer & Groups Assistant you will travel to the school in a colorful chicken bus. Arriving in the school you will receive a tour through the schools, and learn more about us. After the tour, you will be placed in a classroom, where you will assist the teacher with daily tasks. Then it’s time for recess! A good moment to interact with the children. After recess you will go back to support the teacher and when all the kids go home at 12.30PM it’s time for lunch. You will enjoy a local lunch and after this you will travel back to Antigua (while making a stop at the local plaza of the town), where your Volunteer for a Day ends.
