About

Volunteer in Guatemala: Orphanage (Xela) Guatemala: Orphanage Center (Xela) Volunteers needed to help at a government orphanage in the center of Xela. There are always between 60 and 100 children, ages 0-15 years old, who are abandoned, orphans or placed out of their homes. Volunteers assist in the classrooms in the orphanage, with the teacher in charge. The morning shift is from 8-12AM, and the afternoon from 2:30-4:30PM. The afternoon classes have a bit more space for playing and recreational activities. Volunteers can organize games, sports and introduce other activities like dance, yoga, and arts and crafts. Your browser does not support the video tag. Due to the lack of adequate number of staff onsite volunteers for this project need to be pro-active, willing to work with limited direction, and come with a can-do, enthusiastic attitude. ABV Coordinators will help with direction and suggestions, but this program needs enthused participants.
