Volonteer work

With volunteer work in our project, you can directly support the children and families of “Niños en Xela”.

We need your help in the following areas:

  • Homework aid and additional tuition for the children, one-on-one or in groups
  • Literacy training with the women
  • Organization of various events during the year (workshops, family reunions, recreational day etc.)
  • Accompaniment of the coordinators during family and school visits
  • Assistance with administrative work


  • More than 18 years old and certificate of at least middle school or professional formation
  • Enjoying work with children, youth and women
  • At least basic or intermediate level of Spanish
  • Ability to pay for rent, food and travel costs yourself
  • Openness and tolerance
  • A minimum of 2 months commitment

In Quetzaltenango you can attend Spanish language courses at affordable, economic prices. Normally, it’s one-on-one-tuition. If you want to receive classes in a Spanish school, we are pleased to help you with finding a school. Also, if you need help with finding a good place to stay during your volunteer work with us, we can assist you!
