Classroom Assistants for Children & Youth Guatemala
We provide underprivileged children with an education. We run two primary schools and a secondary school which house over 500 Guatemalan children who would otherwise lack sufficient resources to attend Guatemala’s public schools.
- 2009 – The first elementary school opened, Nuestro Futuro, in partnership with the local community
- 2012 – Based on the success of the first school, a second elementary school was opened, El Porvenir, in nearby San Lorenzo
- 2014 – The first students graduate from Nuestro Futuro and construction begins on a middle school to accommodate them
- 2015 – The middle school, El Básico, opens in Ciudad Vieja to continue the secondary education of our students
- 2017- The first students graduate from El Porvenir and from our middle school, El Básico. And we also celebrated our 10th year anniversary!
Niños de Guatemala sees the volunteer program as a win-win situation, everybody receives benefit from the volunteer experience, plus volunteerism itself makes a specific contribution by generating well-being for people and their communities. Let's work together for a cause such as the Education, Entrepreneurship and Empowerment for almost 500 children, their families and their communities. The short-term international volunteer program at Niños de Guatemala will be at least 4 weeks of time, and up to 3 months. The long-term international volunteer program at Niños de Guatemala will be at least 6 months, and up to 1 year. You will be working directly at one of our schools (2 primary schools and 1 middle school).
