The childcare program in Guatemala gives you the opportunity to give individual attention and assistance to children from poor homes and communities.
Many children at the projects we work with are affected by poor home life, little to no schooling and alcohol and drug abuse among their families. Volunteers will work in street children centers, orphanages, and schools.
Work varies but generally consists of providing individual attention, playing with children, organizing games and activities, educating children regarding hygiene, and assisting with home work. Volunteers play an important role in working alongside local staff to improve the educational, emotional, and hygiene conditions of the children.
Programs begin on each Monday of every month.
- You must be over 18 years of age at the beginning of the program
- Volunteers must provide a criminal background check
- Spanish is not a prerequisite for the IVHQ Guatemala program but it is recommend you learn or join classes in country which can be arranged
