Volunteer in Guatemala

Ak’ Tenamit’s project site in Guatemala counts on international professional volunteers to help accomplish its mission. The number of volunteers working at the project varies from time to time, but a reasonable estimate is 8 volunteers involved at various levels.

Ak’ Tenamit prefers a minimum commitment of six months, or three months as a clinic volunteer, and a working knowledge of Spanish. Volunteers receive board (a small room in the volunteer “galera”) and food (three meals a day, seven days a week consisting in rice, beans and tortillas), but are responsible for their travel to and from Guatemala and for any personal expenses.

Ak’ Tenamit is currently looking for volunteers to fill the following positions:
