Volunteer in Guatemala

Guatemala is known for its spectacular volcanoes, lakes, and mountains, as well as for its strong Mayan and Spanish influences. Indigenous Mayan culture is very visible in Guatemala, due both to the numerous Mayan ruins dotting the countryside and to the fact that Mayan communities have kept many of their traditions and customs alive, even as the country modernizes. Guatemala has had a difficult political history, but after being torn apart by a decades-long civil war during the second half of the 20th century, it is proudly emerging as a strong economic and political power in Central America. More than half of Guatemalans still live below the poverty line, however, and there is a great need for volunteers who wish to contribute to this country’s future.

Those who choose South Africa as a destination for an international internship have something truly unique in store. The country’s culture is set apart from other African nations by its extreme European and Asian influences, and booming economy. As the economic epicenter of Africa, the nation of South Africa offers endless professional opportunities in fields such as Business and Finance. Parallel to this developing economy is an art scene all its own, providing ample professional experiences in fields such as film production and wine. Weekend opportunities provide the perfect opportunity to visit the nation’s breathtaking beaches, shelf-like mountains, and of course Kruger National Park – said to be the best site for a true African safari. Interns can expect to work side by side with local colleagues, receive direction from a manager or staff member, and behave just as one would in a real job. On weekends or after work hours, interns engage in a host of activities depending on each participant’s tastes. Interns share meals with new friends or host family members, take in cultural events, explore the city, or even take day or weekend trips outside of the area.
