A Volunteer Group with Niños de Guatemala is an unforgettable service learning trip for a group of people who want to learn more about Guatemala, the community we serve, the work we are doing, and also want to lend a helping hand.

The objective of a volunteer trip program is to involve volunteers in community-based service projects and to give volunteers opportunities to learn and work with the communities to foster an experience where both participants and the local community members are exposed to alternative forms of living. Being completely immersed into diverse environments enables participants to experience, discuss, and understand social issues in a significant way; encouraging a broader understanding of the world and our role within the global context of development.

NDG welcomes all kinds of groups from all walks of life. From medical and teaching professionals to high school groups, fraternities/sororities, mission teams and others. Regardless of type, Volunteer Groups are a great opportunity to enhance your understanding of Niños de Guatemala´s mission, to help us break the cycle of poverty and  build a better future for the next generation of Guatemalans.
