Many of our core activities are carried out by a team of exceptionally dedicated volunteers. For example, Dr. Rene, a retired Guatemalan pediatrician, oversees our free weekly medical clinic, where she is sometimes assisted by other Spanish-speaking volunteer physicians and health professionals. We welcome small medical and dental teams to visit and help provide treatment to patients in their home communities.
Other volunteers provide us with teaching, communication and administration skills either from abroad or while living close to our project for an extended period. We are happy to host long-term volunteers in Guatemala with the following conditions:
- stay with us for at least one year
- speak fluent Spanish
- offer professional skills such as teaching, nursing, writing/editing, IT skills, etc.
