Volunteer in Guatemala

Join us for an unforgettable experience working to make a meaningful difference in the lives of families living in poverty. Volunteers travel to some of the most remote parts of Guatemala to provide life-saving medical care, make homes safe and healthy for families, and train rural schoolteachers.

Every trip is a different adventure, but volunteers can expect long days, hard work, simple accommodations, welcoming hosts, and the chance to build lasting friendships with a community of people dedicated to service. 

‚ÄčAs a volunteer, you'll have an opportunity to help people living in extreme poverty change their lives immediately--and for years to come. With HELPS' strong local infrastructure and proven programs, you can be certain you are having a lasting, positive impact on the people you meet in Guatemala.

‚ÄčThe life you change most, though, may be your own.   As one of our veteran volunteers put it,  "[At the end of each day on a HELPS trip] you are so tired; everything in your body hurts. But the help we give people truly changes you and your perspective about what is important in life."
