We're living in a finca in the Guatemalan countryside. Our little primary school was founded on the property in order to promote education at the very local level, enabling the kids of the surrounding indigenous communities to access primary education. We have one local teacher working at the school and we try to have always 2 volunteers helping him. There are 30 kids from 6 to 13.
The volunteers should speak and write Spanish accurately as they'll be asked to teach the basic disciplines in Spanish.
The school year begins in January and ends in October. Usually the volunteers stay half a year, from January to late May o from June to October. But it's also possible to stay for a shorter period if we have vacant posts.
The place is really beautiful, it is located in the Polochic's valley at the foot of a mountain. Lake Izabal is 55 km from the finca, and Livingston and the Caribbean coast about 120 km.

Hello my name is Harol and I teach English in Guatemala. We work hard at making a difference. We teach English to people of all ages and backgrounds. With adults we help them get jobs, promotions, and job security. Teaching young adults English means they can get a job to pay for university. Teaching children English? Well, let's just say that the sky's the limit for them. For many low-income Guatemalans learning english is the key to breaking generations of poverty and creating a better future.

During the week volunteers will help teach classes for adults in the city and at Republica Federal De Alemania Escuela. I have established a partnership with the principle there and we are working together to also teach the teachers English to increase our impact. The school is very low-income and located only a few miles away. Materials are provided and volunteers will receive training in how to teach and facilitate lessons. Volunteers will work with me on teaching lessons and with exp... more inside

We are a non-profit organization based in Guatemala. It was founded in 2000 by a group of local people concerned by the serious environmental, social and cultural problems affecting the nation. They established an ecological education center to promote permaculture techniques, local biodiversity conservation, production of organic food, and a seed bank that strives to reconstruct the Mayan seed heritage.


The centre develops the practical skills and awareness needed to ensure food sovereignty, community development and the preservation of biodiversity and ancestral knowledge.
Open to receive volunteers April, 2017. We maintain organic, sustainable crops for local consumption, run a renowned seed bank, and are sponsoring a local nutrition project based on native foods. We invite you to share our community near Lake Atitlan.

Through our volunteer program, you can offer a helping hand for the institute’s ongoing projects on-site and within the communities while learning and sh... more inside
