International Volunteering

Become an NDG Volunteer

Since the beginning of NDG’s founding, dedicated volunteers have been a key part of fulfilling our mission at Niños de Guatemala. Volunteers get to experience Guatemala first-hand while doing good for the local communities. We welcome you into our Volunteer Program.

We offer a variety of volunteer work options: assist one of our English teachers in the Dual Immersion Program, support one of our teachers in the classroom, host your own sports or artistic expression workshop or tutor a group of students.

Volunteer Work Hours

07:30 – 13:30 Regular Classes
15:00 – 16:00 Reinforcement and Workshops

Most volunteers work in the school throughout the morning and study Spanish in our Spanish school in Antigua in the afternoon.
