Benefits

Friends from around the world

Connect with other participants at your homestay or the program support office in La Antigua. Social activities are offered each week.


Professional Development

You’ll learn about local social dynamics in your placement area, and then have the chance to contribute to the English language learning of local learners.


Welcoming host family

You’ll have a key to come and go as you please, and breakfast and dinner provided each day. Rooms are shared, with the option of a private room upgrade.


Friendly, bilingual support staff

You’ll have access to the volunteer coordinating staff seven days a week to talk about any challenges, travel plans, or other logistics. The support centers offer free WiFi, coffee, or just a place to hang out or use as a meeting point.


Chance to improve your Spanish

Take two hours of group Spanish lessons each day at a small additional cost. Group sizes are kept intentionally small to maximize personal support.


Beautiful locations

La Antigua is a great leaping off point for travel in Guatemala. Enjoy a relaxing stay at beautiful Lake Atitlan, head to the Pacific coast, explore Mayan villages and more!
