Become a Volunteer Group
NDG hosts volunteer groups on a short-term basis, 1 week up to 3 weeks. The groups are of a minimum of 6 people who come to volunteer, learn from the Guatemalan culture and goes on wonderful adventures. Volunteer Groups are a great opportunity to enhance your understanding of Niños de Guatemala’s mission and help build a better future for the next generation of Guatemalans.
Our groups will live in Antigua and they will work directly at one of our schools (2 primary schools and 1 middle school) in communities called Ciudad Vieja and San Lorenzo El Cubo only 20-30 minutes away from Antigua. Groups will have the opportunity to share their skills and talents with our students, and the Niños de Guatemala staff.
Some of the volunteer work option for our groups are:
- Infrastructure: construction, or painting
- Classroom Assistance
- English Assistance
- Artistic Expression Workshops
- Sports Workshops
- Summer School (Only in November)
Outside the schools your group can get off the beaten track and experience Antigua’s wonderful, culture, people, and landscapes. There are countless cultural and social activities we can organize for you including Cooking classes, Salsa, Coffee Farm tours, Chocolate making and much more.
Our goal is to help your trip be memorable, meaningful, and empowering.
