Summary

Volunteer Abroad & Learn Spanish

Volunteer in Guatemala and discover a country of soaring volcanoes, ancient Mayan ruins and lush forests. Spanish Marks connects volunteers with organisations dedicated to the development of Guatemala. Choose from 5 tailored volunteering opportunities put together by your placement advisor based on your unique skills and motivations for volunteering. Projects for individual volunteers range from 2 weeks to 6 months. Online pre-departure Spanish lessons are included, which will help you make the most out of your time in Guatemala, open new doors and start new adventures!

Why Volunteer in Guatemala?

Guatemala is known as 'the land of eternal spring' with a fascinating landscape of volcanoes, ancient ruins and colourful markets. However, poverty is rife with much of the infrastructure lacking adequate funding and support. Spanish Marks connects volunteers with organisations dedicated to bringing about positive change in Guatemala.

Types of Projects

Whether you are interested in teaching, animal conservation or human rights, Spanish Marks is connected with over 700 social enterprises across Guatemala offering the chance to make a difference. Our placement advisors will contact you to understand the area you are interested in and what you would like to get out of a volunteering placement. We will then put together a list of 5 tailored opportunities for you to choose from. 

You may find yourself working within an organisation's team or introducing your own programs, whether that be sports classes for a local school or healthcare campaigns for a local community. All placements are with ethical and responsible volunteering organisations who are passionate about making a positive impact in Guatemala.

Projects have flexible start dates, and project length can be tailored to individual preferences. 25 x online Spanish lessons are included, which will help you make the most out of your placement and give you a lifelong skill! We also believe volunteering abroad is among the most immersive experiences you can get and should be accessible to all. For this reason, we keep our pricing as low as possible and avoid unnecessary fees.

Support

Extensive pre-departure support is given including advice on homestay options, tips on day-to-day living in Guatemala and pre-departure Spanish lessons. There will be opportunities to meet our team both in the UK and once you arrive in Guatemala.

As well as your project placement, we can give you advice on how to spend your free time in Guatemala, from visiting world-renowned organic coffee farms to discovering ancient Mayan ruins in dense jungles. Volunteer with Spanish Marks for an opportunity of a lifetime! For more details about our volunteering opportunities abroad, simply contact us via the enquiry form below or visit our website!
