Volunteers in Guatemala stay with local host families. ELI truly believes that this is the best way to fully immerse in another culture and get the most from an international experience. All families are carefully screened and are well-respected members of the community. Participants will have either a private or shared bedroom with secure storage (volunteer must provide own padlock). Bathrooms are shared with the host family. Volunteers will be provided with breakfast and dinner daily.
Participants should arrive in Guatemala City on a Wednesday or Thursday in order to allow orientation.
In December, we ask that participants not arrive December 23 and January 1. This allows our coordinator and his staff to spend the Christmas holiday with their families.
After you fill out the Application Form on our website, our Application Advisor will be in touch to help you with the next steps.
