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.
