IFRE Volunteer Guatemala


VOLUNTEER IN GUATEMALA
www.ifrevolunteers.org

Welcome to volunteer Guatemala . For the nature-lover or the history buff, the entire country of Guatemala reads like an encyclopedia of people (both indigenous and those echoing their colonial ancestry), places (ruins of the Mayan Empire as well as quickly-developing cities), and sceneries (landscaped brimming with rainbow-colored wildlife and plants). With people as diverse as the ecosystems found within this Central American country, Guatemala is a perfect place to travel and volunteer.

IFRE invites you to join its volunteer in Guatemala program to explore the country, serve poor kids and women groups, enrich your lifetime experience, and share your love and passion for others. Presently, we offer volunteer in Guatemala in Antigua and Guatemala City , the two most vibrant and beautiful cities of Guatemala.

FREE SPANISH LANGUAGE AND CULTURAL IMMERSION (2 HOURS A DAY UP TO 12 WEEKS)

Your Guatemala Experience starts with Spanish language program. Presently, IFRE offers free Spanish language classes for volunteers joining the Guatemalan volunteer program - volunteering and learning Spanish simultaneously. For example, volunteers can take Spanish classes from 9:00-11:00 AM (before lunch) followed by volunteer activities. However, you can choose to take the Spanish classes or work only in a volunteer project. Alternatively, volunteers may take Spanish classes from 3:00-4:00 PM (after their day's volunteer work). Most of the projects are close to our nearby office (Spanish language center), so it is possible for volunteers do either.
