HELP US GIVING CLASSES TO INDIGENOUS KIDS
We are a European-Guatemalan family living off agriculture in the Polochic Valley, Guatemala. We have a little primary school to the benefit of the indigenous communities living around the finca. For most of them it is the only way to access primary education. We have been working with one local teacher and tried to have always two volunteers helping him at school. There are currently 33 kids from 6 to 13 years old. The volunteers have to speak and write Spanish accurately as they're 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, either from January to late May or from June to October. Exceptionally we accept people for a shorter period of time if we have vacant posts. The place is really beautiful, in the middle of nowhere in the countryside. It's very tropical in terms of climate and culture. Geographically we are located at 50 km west from L... more inside

Hi travellers! We're a fun, colorful hostel in the lush Semuc Champey valley, just a 10-minute walk from the famous pools and cascades. We have a great team made up of local Kek'Chi Maya and international travelers. We're constantly improving our place to surpass our guest's expectations.

We need help from volunteers in various areas, anything to improve our guest's stay. We can always use help with the bar, socializing with the guests and generally to create a good vibe, but we also have space for other positions (such as a yoga teacher, sports/activities or tell us what you can bring to the table!)

So we're looking for sociable, outgoing volunteers that want to stay for at least a month. Intermediate English is a must, preferably basic Spanish. Any other language is a bonus. You'll have plenty of opportunity to improve your language skills while here!

In return we will give you a bed in our volunteer dorm, three great meals a day, 50% discount on drinks/snacks and full ... more inside

Our home is a beautiful consciously-evolving community that strives to create a thriving eco village that adheres to the principles of regenerative permaculture . We are an international family working to teach and empower local communities, volunteers, students and guests with the knowledge and practices needed to ground the new paradigm on our planet. Through events, celebrations and hard work we are manifesting this vision every day. Together changing our world through love.

On an ongoing basis we host volunteers, co-creators (people hosting classes, retreats and workshops), students and paying guests. We usually have ongoing classes of yoga, meditation, Qi Gong and other types of classes available. Our new community is only just over a year, as of April 2018. This means we've really got a blank canvas for creative expression and molding this project into something beautiful. Likewise we are constantly testing and improving our processes to create a harmonious community.

We are a small jungle hideaway located in the middle of the Rio Dulce National Park, between Rio Dulce town and Livingston (Caribbean side of Guatemala). Although it feels like a million miles from anywhere, being just off the popular tourist route between Livingston and the town of Rio Dulce means that the hotel is easily accessible by boat.

We have an opening for a volunteer starting in May and for a Manager (with local salary) starting at the end of June, 2015.

The hotel has 2 bungalows, 2 rooms and a 5-beds Jungle Loft. max 18 persons bed space. We offer drinks, restaurant services, rent kayaks, organize tours etc. We work closely with the local indigenous community. All our electricity comes from solar and we do our best to minimize our impact on our environment.

We are offering a place for an enthusiastic volunteer, willing to engage in whatever needs to be done.

Speaking good SPANISH and ENGLISH is essential, any experience in tourism/hospitality is a big advant... more inside

Up in the cornfields of Pachaj in Cantel (10km from Quetzaltenango), Armando has created an inspiring project to combat environmental degradation and stand up for indigenous rights. The Chico Mendes Reforestation Project (El Proyecto de Reforestación Chico Mendes) is a community-run initiative that provides a unique opportunity to work in solidarity with a rural village while living with a local family and learning about environmental justice issues.

Individuals and groups are welcome to come and stay at the project for a minimum of five days, although many stay for a few weeks or even months.

We are a non-profit organization based in Guatemala. IMAP 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.

We are a small (2.5 acre) highly diversified permaculture site located in the rocky coffee valley of Tzununa on Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. The terrain is incredibly rocky, and while the area is generally inclined and mountainous, we are on a flat part of the valley floor. We have road access and one boarder of our property is a year round river that is gravity fed through the whole farm. We have volcanic, sandy soil that is high in many minerals and relatively fertile, although incredibly rocky and shallow.

Our main centerpiece operations are greens and goats. We grow a variety of organic salad and cooking greens for sale at various markets, restaurants, and stores. We also have a spectacular goat herd and are now selling milk, cheeses, and yogurt. Aside from this, we also raise chickens for meat and hens for eggs, and pigs seasonally. We also raise avocados, jocotes (like a golden plum), coffee, malanga (taro root), various vegetables, sprouts, and several other products. Finall... more inside
